Review

This book offers various theme-based activities appropriate for a range
of abilities, though generally aimed at junior-grade levels. Hunter has
illustrated the activities with detailed and eye-catching pictures.

The visual discrimination activities proved challenging for this
reviewer, who was reduced to peeking at the answers. Also included are
mazes; word searches; classification; coloring; spelling; matching;
memory and symmetry activities; and picture, word, and illustrating
puzzles. In fact, apart from a shortage of math-related activities, this
book addresses most areas of the curriculum. Hunter develops various
basic skills while indirectly teaching about Canadian wildlife.

The Canadian Wildlife Activity Book will be a valuable resource for
parents who wish to encourage independent learning in their children;
teachers could also use it to pursue theme-based learning activities in
the classroom.
