I Am Canada Born in Vancouver, Heather Patterson grew up in Toronto with two wonderful parents and five brothers and sisters in a close-knit family. After university she became an elementary school teacher, then stayed home to raise three daughters. When Heather went to work at Scholastic, she started her career there as a book club editor in the marketing division, managing various book clubs over many years and is now an editor in publishing. Heather shares a home with her husband in Toronto, where she is a "Grammie," a quilter, a curler, a nature nut, and a book lover. She is passionately Canadian as is reflected in her most recent book, I Am Canada. She is also the author of A Poppy is to Remember, illustrated by Ron Lightburn and published in 2006.
One favourite that stands the test of time is Gift from the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh.
