From Confederation to the present day, we're bringing you on a trip through the governmental ages with the release of Our Great Prime Ministers, an all-new DK Reader that we are publishing to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday!
Our Great Prime Ministers tells the story of how Canada got its system of government and how the political party system works, and includes profiles of 12 of Canada’s best-known Prime Ministers to bring it all to life.
But before we publish the book this summer, we're polling readers all across the country to discover which Canadian leader deserves the title of Canada’s Greatest Prime Minister!
Has Justin Trudeau, the “Sunny Way” PM, won your heart? Are you more partial to “The Peacekeeper” Lester B. Pearson? Perhaps John Diefenbaker, the first Prime Minister from Western Canada and the “Champion of the Underdog,” is the PM who you feel deserves the title Canada’s Greatest Prime Minister!
Cast your vote below, and get in on the action.
To learn more about Canada's Parliament and the people who lead it, discover Our Great Prime Ministers. This Level 4 DK Reader will build reading skills and vocabulary while telling the story of Canada's government, how it is formed, and how it works.
Perfect for 9–11 year olds reading independently, the DK Level 4 Reader series makes reading a fact-discovering adventure, and supports and encourages a lifetime love of reading. Nonfiction subjects are clearly explained, described vividly, and brought to life with true stories, fascinating facts, and photos.
