a second book of Canadian Animals

Canadian Animals in the USA

A Second Book of Canadian Animals
May
1967

Animal books are a slam dunk choice in any public library youth collection. They are always popular, and I have weeded those books on condition more often than not. They simply wear out from use.

There is nothing particularly wrong with this book, other than the outdated language. The black and white illustrations aren’t particularly appealing as color photographs or illustrations.This book just looks dated. I am not sure references to Canadian animals makes any sense, especially since this is sitting in a Michigan public library.

Canadian Dinosaurs

Show your passport, Mr Dinosaur

Thanks to a librarian friend, here is a book on Canadian dinosaurs (as opposed to those pesky American Dinos). I am imagining  a few Canadian Dinos taking in some Tunnel Bar-B-Q, hitting a casino or strip club, and then crossing over to catch a Red Wings game in Detroit. (I know Americans in Detroit do this, so I am only assuming the traffic goes both ways.) How do those tiny arms hold the passport?
