Shhh! Canadian Scientists and Inventors RULE  is a great book for sampling information on Canadian discoveries and inventions.  Organized alphabetically, the text and the graphics are engaging and current to 21st century students.  From the invention of the Jolly Jumper to the SmartBoard, this book gives students current and relevant facts on inventions that they will want to know about!

As an educator in British Columbia, I love supporting local talent and can see many curricular-connected activities that could follow the introduction of this book.  Hmmm…..author visit anyone?
