Starting Friday, February 12, 2010, Vancouver will host the twenty-first Olympic Winter Games. This will mark the third time that Canada has hosted the Olympics – the first time being in Montreal in 1976, and the second time in Calgary in 1988. Canada will be united from February 12 to 28 and March 12 to 21 as we cheer on our athletes at the Olympic Winter Games and the Paralympic Winter Games. By introducing children to the world of sports through books that have been written and illustrated by Canadians, you can share with them the pride and excitement that we as Canadians will feel while watching our athletes compete on home snow and ice.
