The CANADA IS FOR KIDS show is now available as a full multi-media presentation! What makes Canada the best place on earth to live? During a CANADA IS FOR KIDS show Michael draws ideas from the minds of the students and matches them to related songs and stories, weaving a spontaneous and highly interactive tapestry of 'things' that make this country and its people so special. As a result, almost no two shows are completely alike. Some schools have invited Michael back more than 20 times and have made his CANADA IS FOR KIDS show an integral part of their Canadian and social studies programming.
