How did places like Flin Flon, Lake Cinderella, Medicine Hat, and Deception Creek get their names? From the Wow Canada! series comes Let's Call It Canada, a fun- and fact-filled collection of stories behind the place names of Canada. Most of us probably don't give much thought to place names until we stumble across one that's really unusual, funny, or surprising, but from the naming of the country right down to the naming of its tiniest town, there is a story to be told. Readers will learn about spots named for significant landmarks and historical events, for local legends and storybook characters, and for people you might think long forgotten. An amazing, multi-layered look at the people, culture, geography, wildlife, and history of our country emerges through these stories. Let's Call It Canada will delight, educate, and inform young readers across the map with its fresh look at Canada's rich heritage.
