About this book

A bedtime book that opens children's minds to the wonders of the world around them.

Award-winning Canadian author and illustrator Andrea Beck has created a unique gift for parents as they wind their little ones down for bedtime. Goodnight, Canada inspires a sense of community as a child who lives in Newfoundland lies in bed wondering about other children across the country. He quietly bids a goodnight to them all, and to Canada itself, province by province, territory by territory.

From the quiet wheat fields of Saskatchewan to a fisherman’s wharf in Nova Scotia, the colourful scenes celebrate the diversity of Canada’s people and key features of each province. So many details brighten each page, bringing Canada to life and creating a world children will want to return to again and again!
