So You Think You Know CANADA, Eh? Fascinating Fun Facts and Trivia about Canada for the Entire Family is a non-fiction educational book written by Marianne Jennings. The author has long been an admirer of the grand and sprawling country to our north. In her book, she shares basic facts about the country, delves into the geography of what is the largest country in the Western Hemisphere and discusses the shivery facts of Canada’s sometimes brutally cold climate. Did you know that Canada’s coldest recorded temperature is the same as has been recorded on Mars? Or that the largest wave ever recorded occurred off the coast of Newfoundland — a 98.4-foot monster that enveloped the QE2 ocean liner during Hurricane Luis? Canada is brimming with world records including the longest highway, longest border, biggest lakes, and largest totem pole. Ever wonder how the Canadian flag got its bright red and white colors? Or which films and TV shows are shot in Canada?

So You Think You Know CANADA, Eh? certainly lives up to its description as fascinating. As I read, I couldn’t help but spontaneously share facts with anyone who happened to be in the room with me. Her admiration for this amazing country is contagious as well. I found myself wishing, not for the first time, that relocating to Canada was a possibility, even with that weather. Anyone who feels at home in the outdoors will swoon at the descriptions of the wildlife, national parks and those thousands of miles of coastline. I loved learning more about Canada, even if I’m not sure I can ever forgive the Canadian who dreamed up the repellant recipe for Hawaiian pizza. Jennings includes a short quiz at the back of the book which is a lot of fun for testing retention, but she also includes a link to a more extensive quiz of over 100 questions to keep that fun going. So You Think You Know CANADA, Eh? Fascinating Fun Facts and Trivia about Canada for the Entire Family is most highly recommended.
