Whether you have pets, love visiting the zoo, live on a farm or just like animals, you’re in luck! This issue of Kayak is all about our animal friends and helpers. From whales to horses, beavers to birds, learn all about how animals are part of the story of Canada. You can also check out creatures from stories, songs, books and TV and learn how a bear from northern Ontario became famous as Winnie-the-Pooh. Then there’s the dog Beautiful Joe, who was treated cruelly, rescued and had a beloved and hugely popular book written about him. Laugh along with Sergeant Bill, the Saskatchewan goat who earned medals in the First World War for capturing an enemy soldier and saving his own men from an explosion.
