Discover the Magic of Reading! can fill your library with thrilled children happily participating in the most amazing program they’ve ever seen! Children LOVE the magic, parents LOVE the positive messages, and Library directors LOVE the resulting increased book circulation!... The show combines amazing magic, lots of audience participation, age appropriate humor, storytelling with reading promotion, a magical game and typically a breathtaking musical routine with mesmerizing special effects! For slightly larger budgets, we can add spectacular illusion(s), such as, floating a child in the air, sawing somebody in half or making them magically appear to introduce the show. Children also go crazy for an incredible animated talking picture! This is an incredibly easy, fun way to hook kids into reading, and get them excited about your Summer Reading Club for example! Not just reading, but checking out & reading both fiction and non-fiction books. At the end of this exciting adventure I typically give the children a list of topics discussed and popular with youngsters, with their associated Dewey Decimal System Numbers! How many programs get kids to actively learn and use the Dewey Decimal System? Make your library glad!
