I Is for Island
A Prince Edward Island AlphabetBook - 2012
Located in the Gulf of St. Lawrence on the east coast of Canada, Prince Edward Island measures only 5,660 sq km (2,184 sq miles). But what this island province lacks in size, it more than makes up for in abundant natural beauty, as well as the scope of its influence on Canadian history. Combining poetry with informational text, PEI Poet Laureate Hugh MacDonald pays homage to the province's natural splendors and proud history. Readers young and old can visit the home of Lucy Maud Montgomery of Anne of Green Gables fame, stroll the streets of historic Charlottetown (known as the birthplace of Canada), or paddle a kayak down the island's nearly 100 named rivers.PEI Poet Laureate Hugh MacDonald's awards include the L.M. Montgomery Children's Literature Award for Chung Lee Loves Lobsters. He lives on the banks of the Montague River.Brenda Jones's children's books include Skunks For Breakfast, which won the Lillian Shepherd Award for illustration. She lives in Charlottetown, PEI.
