Make it Fair! by Frieda Wishinsky
Few things are as wonderfully Canadian as a book about two kids flying around on a sled (with a maple leaf!) to learn about Nellie McClung. Just throw in a beaver playing hockey and you'd be all set! I wish I'd had a series like this when I was growing up, because I would have loved to learn more about Canadian history through books like Make It Fair. The child protagonists are inquisitive and friendly and the story, while told from a child's point of view, brings in a lot of important historical points. This is the first Canadian Flyer Adventures book I've read, but I think it'll be a good go-to book for people looking for fun, historical-based time travel adventures.
