A beautiful picture book featuring artwork by Canada’s finest illustrators — a true-north
tribute to our nation and its children, from coast to coast to coast!

Simple text describes the ample space available to our children in this country, and the freedom they have to grow and dream and share. With artwork from 13 of Canada’s finest illustrators, each page is a celebration and a reminder of the infinite variety of our home and native land.

Heather Patterson’s free verse poem I Am Canada, originally published in 1996, gets new life in this beautiful, illustrated hardcover timed to celebrate both Canada’s 150th year and Scholastic Canada’s 60th anniversary.

20 second trailer for SCRIBBLE (Scholastic Canada, April 2016)

Had fun making this for April 2016's SCRIBBLE (Scholastic Canada).

Circle, Square and Triangle are doing just fine--but when Scribble 'draws' them together, their imaginations soar. 

Original music by my awesome husband on GarageBand. The four solid beats represent Square.The three for Triangle. The cycle is Circle and everything else is Scribble. Hope you like it!
