  1. I am desperately looking for Canadian History books written in French. Are the Canadian Girl series or the Canadian Flyer Adventure series written in French??? Help!!

      1. In response to Dawn’s question regarding Canadian History books written in French, I have been adding French language books to my website, and researching this. I have not added all the books available because the market for French language Canadian History is small, and also the availability of books varies constantly. If anyone is interested, you can contact me directly through my website donnaward.net and I can let you know what is available currently.

      1. I’m wondering about the same thing. Did you find anything out about the historical order of these books?

        1. I couldn’t find a website, but here’s an approximate timeline list:

          Danger, Dinosaurs – prehistoric
          Yikes, Vikings – 1001
          Beware, Pirates – 1577
          Lost in the Snow – 1650s
          A Whale Tale – 1778
          Stop that Stagecoach – 1833
          Hurry Freedom – 1858
          All Aboard – 1885
          On the Case – 1888
          Crazy for Gold -1896
          Flying High – 1909
