Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Taken from Chapter 10: Sports Hockey Ice hockey originated in Canada and is still Canada's most popular sport. In the 1850s, soldiers in Kingston, Ontario, invented this game using a lacrosse ball and field-hockey sticks. Later, players used a wooden disk or a cow's kneecap as a hockey puck! In 1875 the modern rules for hockey were developed, and the sport became very popular. Canadians love hockey! Small cities and towns have local hockey teams, and larger cities have professional teams. A high point of the hockey season is the Stanley Cup playoffs. Professional hockey teams from across North America compete for the Stanley Cup, Canada's most famous trophy. Many great hockey players are Canadian heroes. Gordie Howe, Bobby Orr, Wayne Gretzky, and Mario Lemieux are examples.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6-These revised titles (1993) are a must for any Canadian school library. The entertaining texts are responsive to curriculum objectives or general interest reading. Each volume is packed with effectively organized information. Native, French, and English perspectives are included as are first-person accounts of what it is like to live in Canada. The titles have been updated and address current issues such as the challenges facing Western farmers and refugees, and note the creation of a "first self-governed native territory" of Nunavut. Numerous full-color photographs illustrate the books; however, only Land includes a map. In terms of scope and intended audience, these are excellent works.
