Each Show Features:

  • FREE book prizes for your group from Scholastic Books, and school appropriate comic books from Strange Adventures, Halifax. Girls and boys love to read books they’ve won in the show!
  • An hour of high-energy magic, fun, audience participation and the positive promotion of literacy.
  • Helpful literacy information for your schools and teachers, plus reading tips for students to take home to their parents.
  • Adaptable to classrooms, libraries and school gyms for any audience size or age you need.
  • Extra bonus magic prizes for everyone.

Mister J’s “Magic of Reading” is presented in partnership with the RCMP and the Adopt-A-Library Program. Adopt-A-Library is a wonderful, proven, effective incentive program which encourages and challenges your kids to read! Great for your school!
