If you are a school or library looking for a show with an educational message for your students, here’s an idea:

‘The Magic of Reading’ is an award-winning educational show for schools and libraries!

‘The Magic of Reading’ is a high-energy, interactive, feel-good magic show with an important, repeated educational message: “Reading is Magic!” and “Readers are Leaders!”. All the magic in the show is custom-themed around the importance of reading, in various aspects of life.

You can use this show to promote literacy month at your school or library, a book fair, author visit, or even special events, like the birthday of Dr. Seuss! (March 2nd)

With the popularity of ‘Harry Potter’, magic and literacy already share a natural marriage in students’ minds. You can easily use ‘The Magic of Reading’ to promote literacy and a magical sharing experience at your school or library.

Each Show Features:

  • FREE school appropriate comic books courtesy of Strange Adventures, Halifax. (Naturally, when one of your students *wins* a free comic book prize in front of all their friends, it makes the reading material extra special, so girls and boys love to read them even more!)
  • An hour of high-energy magic, fun, interactive 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 size audience, or age group, that you need.

Will treasure these pics always...they're going up in the Magic Room.

It's Pride Month! LOVE is MAGIC! You know, when gifting beloved actor/activist GEORGE TAKEI with a balloon rainbow, my brother and I were also honoured to thank him personally, for his persistent and preeminent promotion of equality, acceptance, and Love. His joyful, smiling response (in trademark Takei voice, if you can imagine hearing it here yourself!) was: "Why, thank you. And of course, Love should...always be...COLOURFUL." Some sublime sentiments, spoken by the stellar Star Trek Star. Happy Pride, y'all. "Oh My!" ;) #LoveIsMagic #HappyPride #GeorgeTakei #Acceptance #Celebration #Equality #Love #DavidJolly #TheAmazingMisterJ #Magician #Entertainment #BirthdayParty #BalloonTwisting #OhMy www.misterj.ca www.amazingmisterj.ca www.halifaxmagician.ca ...

Happy Birthday, LEA THOMPSON! You'll remember the talented actor of course as Lorraine McFly (Michael J. Fox's Mom) in 'Back to the Future', (and also as an 80s celebrity crush for many, including yours truly back in the day), PLUS she also starred (and sang!) in 1986's 'Howard the Duck'...an infamous flop, but a movie that she still loves! Naturally, to SHARE said love, yours truly simply HAD to make her a 'Howard the Duck balloon!' Luckily, it did give her a hearty laugh, and she said it was definitely the first such balloon she's ever been gifted. 😋 A very upbeat, fun-loving lady in person. Here's a story she told! FUN-FACT: Didja know her first major role was 1983's Jaws 3-D, for which she was required to do extensive waterskiing. Get this: Lea couldn't waterski AT ALL, nor could she even SWIM! During her audition, she said: 'Oh, sure!" when asked if she had these skills. So, they hired her on the spot, which gave her only FIVE days (!) to learn how! Talk about "fake it 'till you make it!" Gutsy woman. May we all adopt Lea's Life Lesson: be fearless, and always dive right in! Wishing you a Ducky Day, Magic Friends! #LeaThompson #HappyBirthday #AmazingWoman #80sCelebCrush #HowardTheDuck #BackToTheFuture #DavidJolly #AmazingMisterJ #Magician #BirthdayParty www.misterj.ca www.amazingmisterj.ca www.halifaxmagician.ca ...
