Product Details


“High visual appeal and equally high information quotient. Shemie’s paintings of Canada’s rich and very diverse architectural profile are nothing short of exquisite.”
The Globe and Mail

Building Canada is an interesting and informative volume which not only teaches the reader about architecture, but also tells wonderful stories of Canada and the wide variety of people who settled here.”
Resource Links

Building Canada is a fascinating introduction to architecture and the forces that influence it…[It] demonstrates, as a book about architecture should, a flair for decoration and design, and a commitment to quality.”
Quill & Quire

“Bonnie Shemie’s beautifully illustrated Building Canada invites children to discover the architecture that surrounds them and that is as much a part of their heritage as the Maple Leaf…a useful reference as well as a treasure to explore.”
Kitchener-Waterloo Record

“…a marvelous resource for young Canadian historians with this colourful picture book…handsome, kid-friendly…a welcome new resource.”
