Canadian Sites and Symbols Prince Edward Island

Book Review   by:Innereye     Original Author: Rennay Craats
ª
 
There are two Prince Edward Islands in the world. One is located in the southern Indian Ocean near South Africa, and the other one which this book is about is a Canadian province.

PEI is also known as spud island because of it's potato crop.

The animals living in Prince Edward Island are: bears, bobcats, caribou, cougars, beavers, foxes, hares, raccoons and skunks. More than three hundred different species of birds are found in Prince Edward Island.

PEI is also known for it's lobsters, at one point since they had too many, they even used them as fertilizer.

People sometimes see dolphins and whales swimming near the coasts.

The soil in Prince Edward Island is red, it almost looks like it came from Mars, it is also this red soil that contributes for growing potatoes which is the main source of income for farmers.

Visitors usually come to Prince Edward Island to see the beautiful beaches and cliffs. But this is not a paradise island, it does snow in winter with an average of 11.2 feet of snow.

Confederation Bridge is a bridge that links Prince Edward Island to New Brunswick, it is 8 miles long and curved.

Other facts are described in this book full of pictures, and a quiz with answers is at the end.
