"All Across Canada" is divided into three sections, each covering a major region of Canada, and the individual provinces or territories comprising that region. In "Wandering Through the West with Wally," "Hiking Around Hudson Bay with Holly," and "Ambling Through the Atlantic Provinces with Andy," each character takes the reader on a journey to the different provinces and/or territories where they meet their respective "friends." Each of the "friends" is named for the capital of each province or territory (for example, "Victoria," who lives in British Columbia). A colourful map, fun and informative poem, and artwork accompany each cartoon "friend." Highlighted are various topographical, industrial, and agricultural features, and the specific location of each province or territory within Canada.

"All Across Canada" is a useful educational aid for teachers, home educators, parents, and students. This book could help acquaint children with Canada, familiarize them with various cultural and geographical aspects, and at the same time allow them to enjoy the process of learning.

The library journal, Kirkus Discoveries, described "All Across Canada"- submitted as a representative of our geography series- as follows: "For very brief introductions to the major natural formations and economic industries of Canada's provinces and territories, this is a good choice for younger readers. The mneumonic device of naming characters after the provincial capitals will help kids memorize them effortlessly. Combine this with the rhyming versus summarizing the important information, and Weisberg and Yoffe have created quite the learning tool..."

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
