This is a great book to learn a bit of Canadian history. Besides the obvious story of why/how/when we got our national anthem, there are 5 separate timelines of various historical facts. There are also 3 related Canadian stamps illustrated in this book, an 1880 map of Canada and a present day map, as well as the lyrics and music for both the French and English version of our anthem.
