Everyone loves Nova Scotia, especially... me!


A selection of sentences written by children and inspired by the prompt, “I love Nova Scotia because…,” cause Why I Love Nova Scotia to be charming and a delight to read. With full-page colour illustrations on every page of this board book, readers are taken across Nova Scotia. Accompanied by creatures native to Nova Scotia, readers will visit areas across the province; readers from, and unfamiliar with, Nova Scotia will have great fun with this book!

     Readers, parents and educators will find Why I Love Nova Scotia a great way to get their children and students thinking about why they love where they live, and the concept behind the book could easily be extended to other parts of Canada and beyond. Why I Love Nova Scotia would be a great resource for elementary and low-level ESL classrooms.

Highly Recommended.
