July 1st is Canada Day, so today's Tot Books on Thursdays features books about Canada!  We generally read books on this list throughout the year, but they are especially great for Canada Day because they can help teach little Canadians about the great country that they live in.

This post contains links to Amazon and Chapters.

Books About the Different Provinces/Territories

We own quite a few books about Canada, including some cheap board books for the dollar store.  We have books about our home province (Saskatchewan), as well as some books that my parents brought back from the Maritimes.  Here are a few that we love:
