Dear Library Friend:

Allow me to help you. Today so there are so many different things that pull children away from reading. So many children miss out on how reading can not only enrich their lives, but also be loads of fun. You want a program that will enchant, enthrall and captivate the children with the Power of Reading. You want the very best program possible for your children. Allow me to introduce you to my 2021 Summer Reading Show – “Fan-Tastic-Tales: The Magic of Reading and the Animal World.”

I promise you a highly interactive program that will have the children involved, captivated and enchanted. We will be embarking on Magical Journey of Learning and Fun as we explore our Animal Kingdom and so much more!

Using Comedy, Story Telling, Leo the Lion, the King of the Beasts Puppet and Magic this journey will lead the children to treasure our world and the various Animal Kindoms as well as understand the joy and magic of reading. Pebbles the Magical Bunny will make an appearance as well.

Here are just a few Highlights of the Show!

  •  The Children will not only learn, they will laugh, clap and have a great time.
  • The Show will incorporate all the children into the fun & learning
  • LIVE RABBIT! Pebbles the LIVE Magical Bunny will make an incredible and mystifying appearance!  PLUS everyone can take a selfie with her after the show! (if held outside, Pebbles has to stay home if the weather is too hot)
  • FRIENDLY PUPPETS KIDS LOVE! You’ll meet Leo the Lion Puppet who will be there to both entertain and explain about the animals in his Kingdom.
  • SAFETY FIRST! The Show will be safe! I follow all recommended health and distancing guidelines.
  • Books that you would like the Children to check out will magically appear.
  • The Show will feature magical effects that include animals that inhabit the land, the sea and sky (and perhaps some that lived long ago).
  • FREE GIFTS FOR EVERYONE! EVERYONE will receive 3 awesome prizes….
    • A custom handout puzzle sheet which will reinforce the magic of reading and the animals we talked about in the show!
    • A Custom Bookmark to remind them of the show and what they learned!
    • And The Amazing Magi’s Special Dollar Bill that will teach them some basic magic tricks they can make at home with every-day objects.
  • MORE FUN THAN EVER BEFORE! Last, but not least, did I mention the children will have FUN, FUN, and more FUN!

PS – While we all hope we will be back live and in person in Summer 2021, I am constructing my show so that it will be available live and in person, but also available live with a multi-camera format in both Zoom and Facebook Live as well as a Prerecorded Show that you may use.

PSS – I also have available my Winterfest Show, my Christmas Show and other Reading Shows available live via Zoom or Facebook if you are looking for a program prior to Summer 2021.
