Description - Alberta by Sarah Yates

Suitable for Grade 4-8, these informative texts cover each province's geography, economy, history (beginning before European expropriation), and people. The numerous, full-color photographs have clear captions. There are, however, a number of items that detract from each volume: the pronunciation guide, glossary, time line, "fun facts," and economic maps are humorous, vague, or incomplete, rather than informative. Students researching Nova Scotia or Alberta will find plenty of facts in these titles, but by far the best resources on Canada and its people are "Canada and the Canada Yearbook", published annually by Statistics Canada. They include well-designed charts and maps, are easy to read, and are useful for researchers and browsers alike.

Buy Alberta by Sarah Yates from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
