Watch the Canadian History in 90 seconds as
demonstrated by the author Deborah Kobza!
Deborah had a vision to create a simplified overview of Canadian history, an overview where no one would be left out or left behind in learning it.
With a pioneering spirit and a purpose beyond herself she laboured for three years bringing forth a talking timeline called "History Tellers"!
History Tellers is truly an extraordinary accomplishment. There is nothing out there like it. Lives and learning are being changed and touched with this unique multi-sensory method of learning.
