macleod-canadaThe chronological organization uses themes such as “The Great Depression 1929–1938” and “The Digital Age 1980–1999” to present people, discoveries, events, movements, etc. in a year-by-year fashion. Related facts are provided in sidebars, and line-and-wash illustrations lighten the text. The plethora of varied information includes excerpts from ten other Kids Can books. The book is useful for libraries needing a history of the U.S.’s bordering country.
