" Why We Live Where We Live by Kira Vermond, illustrated by Julie McLaughlin – Excellent exploration of homes, reasons why homes are built in certain areas, and more. " said.

"I like the big picture scope of this book. The answer to why we live where we live includes many different aspects including climate, water access, language, economics and family just to start. It begins with information about why our planet is perfect for us.

However, I wasn't happy to read this part in the section on Immigration. The passage prior is talking about how some countries want people to come. Then there is this:

"A big country needs people to fill it up.
This happened in Canada more than 100 years ago, when the government offered Europeans 160 acres. (65 ha) free farmland in the massive country if they'd hop a (free) ship and come over. It worked. By 1910, Canada's population had doubled."
Notice that there is no mention that that free farmland was actually territory belonging to numerous indigenous peoples?
