Donna Ward is the author of four Canadian history/geography curricula, which have been widely used across the country in public, private and home schools. Donna's love for good Canadian literature sets the foundation to provide teachers with a wealth of resources. Her goal has been to introduce intriguing stories that will captivate even the most reluctant student. Donna holds a degree in Religious Education from Ontario Bible College (now Tyndale University and College) Toronto.
Donna chose the rewarding journey of home education and taught each of her four children through Grade 8. The lack of quality Canadian material and Donna's love for historical stories inspired the development of a program for her own children. Subsequently, thorough research and reviews by experts culminated in her popular studies available today. Donna is also a motivational speaker at home educators' conferences across the nation.
Along with a love for our country, Donna also has a love for the people of the world. She strongly supports her husband, Doug, who works with Compassion Canada, a child-sponsorship agency bringing aid to destitute children in third-world countries. The Wards reside in Woodstock, ON. The children are in post-graduate or professional studies, in careers, and one is finishing university.
What People are saying about us....
Thank you so much for sending those social studies books. They looked like the very thing I was searching for. I am sure I will be placing an order with you shortly. The news of these materials will travel around B.C. as I work with about 130 families around the province.

Congratulations, you have done the seemingly impossible! I have been educating Grade 3 and 4 for over ten years. In that time I have not been able to find adequate material on Canada . I ordered your Canada , My Country and I love it! I;m really excited about having found you and am hoping to present your material to the school board for their approval.

I just wanted you to know how much we appreciate your Canadian History curriculum. Our children have worked through Canada , My Country and are now going through Courage and Conquest, Discovering Canadian History. They love history time. Thank you for the work you have put into the easily teachable, fun curriculum.

As my two children sit and work in their Canada, My Country workbooks - totally absorbed - I must take this moment to thank you for your outstanding work. Both children have delighted in every page. Needles to say, their response overflows onto me and all others who are near.

The Road Not Taken
By Robert Frost
TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
