K-Gr 2â€”Despite spare text and sometimes overly simple writing, these biographies of prominent Canadians contain many interesting facts. For instance, hockey goaltender Carey Price's mother was chief of the Ulkatcho First Nation and Prime Minister Stephen Harper wrote a history of hockey. Some of the subjects will be known outside of Canada, but cultural references and some of the wording tend to narrow the appeal to Canadian readers. Each title includes a time line that stretches across the bottom of multiple pages. A link to the publisher's FactHound website is suggested for online resources. But the site asks readers to type in the book's ISBN, a cumbersome extra step. VERDICT Not recommended, except in Canadian libraries in need of additional low-level Canada resources.[Page 32].
