Yesterday, 1 July, was Canada Day! I know that 150 years isn’t that old for a country in the grand scheme of the world but I still happen to think that it’s a pretty big celebration. Yes, people will make fun of us for being overly nice and apologetic but we are proud of who we are as a nation! Today’s post is all about sharing my favourite pieces of Canadian culture and recommendations, in case you also want to take some Canadian time for yourself.
If you were anything like me as a child, you were precocious, probably more than a little annoying, and you loved reading. Children’s books have really developed and expanded as a genre, including the whole tween and YA subgenre- I love that there is a never-ending stream of options for kids to find their reading fit! However, I still believe that the old classic series are where it’s at. There isn’t a ton of violence, they are classic mysteries, and there’s something different about getting lost in the past for a few hours at a time. Today’s post is all about my favourite books as a kid, so get ready for a blast from the past!
