If you are looking for CDN history Donna Ward's stuff is good http://www.donnaward.ca/index.asp
, as is the Discovering Canada info. You can usually get the CBC video special Canada A People's History from the library and Janet Lunn Story of Canada is good for younger kids. Scholastic sells a series called the Kid's book of....Canada/Cdn Prime Ministers etc - and they are usually only $10 - 15 in the scholastic flyers.
I find world history stuff I like and then we supplement with Canadian history. A timeline helps with this to keep the dates straight. And we have a couple of history timeline books from Usbourne and I can't remember the other guy but they help find things that were happening around the world during a certain time period.
I can dig out a great Canadian History reading list for you if you are interested.
