Michael Mitchell makes every day Canada Day with his captivating presentation of songs and stories that tell us why Canada is the best country in the world in which to live. He is invited back for so many return engagements that one school has had him 20 times! Students are continuously engaged with catchy songs, humorous stories and quick brain-teasers that demonstrate many ways our history, geography and "wacky facts" identify us as Canadians. A former co-host of the CTV children's program Storytime, Michael has also written and recorded songs for Sesame Street.
The way you share Canada's history through song and storytelling really captivates our future generation. Please come and visit us again soon! Chris Yuen, Principal, Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Kamloops, BC
