"We need to keep reminding ourselves about how lucky we are to be Canadians, and Birth of City: The Story of Toronto does exactly that. This imaginative history project provides children an opportunity to better understand our native roots and contributions made by immigrants towards our major accomplishments and what better occasion than Canada's 150 anniversary."
