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.
  • Extra bonus magic prizes for everyone.

Feel free to call or e-mail anytime for a free quote, and to check remaining availability!

The Amazing
   Mr. J ON

Do you have restless kids, cooped up at home? Have you considered having them magically imagine...you are all in a SPACESHIP? Had this idea after just watching the (very emotional!) Season Finale of Star Trek: Picard! Just like the touching reunion scenes with our beloved Captain and his longtime friend Commander Riker, your kids can send 'Space Transmissions' to their own Number One, via Skype, or just phoning their fellow awesome astronauts and interstellar pals! If your family is feeling cosmically creative, feel free to copy Mr. J's space balloon designs, pictured here! Maybe have some galactic fun, building a pillow tent "shuttle craft?" Plus, you'll definitely be inspired watching the AMAZING online videos of Canadian Hero, Commander CHRIS HADFIELD (who knows a thing or two about Space Stations, and social isolation!) We are all presently voyaging "where no one has gone before", but we will still "live long and prosper" with the MAGIC of our imaginations! Fly high, Magic Friends!

What's YOUR personal favourite KENNY ROGERS song, and why? Genuinely curious! The late legend just left us at 81, but (as my tribute sign said at his recent concert)..."The Magic Lives Forever!" To share a story with you (as Kenny's songs always did!), Mr. J's favourite song is "THE GAMBLER"...so much so, that the eponymous album rests permanently displayed in Mr. J's Magic Room at home (see pictures!) as a REMINDER. A reminder of WHAT? Well, EVERYTHING! So much subtle wisdom in that simple, oh-so-catchy song. Especially the often overlooked line: "Cause every hand's a winner...and every hand's a loser." Why? Well, we all know life's not fair. But y'know, it's like a Poker game. You could be born rich, you could win the lottery, you could be born super-good looking, or with an exceptional gift to sing, write, or play sports...some folks start the game of life, being dealt an amazing Poker hand. But if you're not smart, if you don't play your cards right, you can sadly squander those gifts! You can blow it, waste your potential, and lose the jackpot, if you don't play your cards right! A winning full-house hand could STILL lose (like Aesop's speedy hare, who actually lost against the slow but steady tortoise!) Likewise, you could be dealt a terrible hand...really crummy cards...but you can STILL WIN the game! You can bluff, you can use strategy, you can use what you got...Poker is like life...and your "losing" hand ends up WINNING! "EVERY hand is a winner, AND, every hand is a loser." (Love the word "AND" in there). Cards are cards...cards are potential...but WE control how they are played. Kenny's 'The Gambler' song reminds us: Life is all about how you play your cards. As a full-time magician who uses cards for a living, let me share with you, you also have the magic power to manipulate cards, too! You really can make them do anything you want! We ALL have that magic power in the Poker Game of Life. Of course, lately the entire WORLD has been dealt a really lousy hand. So how do we decide to play these cards? We can still win this game! This temporary crisis will bring people together spiritually. You can use the time at home to exercise, read, compose a hand-written letter (gasp!) for someone you care about, organize your favourite pictures, or finally do all those home projects you never had time for before. (Yours truly is writing a couple original books, and practicing all-new magic tricks! Hoo boy, just you wait!!) So let's raise a glass to the message of 'The Gambler', and to the entire amazing catalogue of Kenny Rogers music today. So many stellar, heartfelt memories. (Personally, will be playing his signed tambourine gift (!), which the beloved Bearded Bard triumphantly tossed to this ecstatic magician and lifelong fan during his final Maritime concert- see pictures!) We are in tough times, but it's nowhere near the end. You may lose one round of Poker, but you will always get to play the game again. And as we play, we all learn "how to hold 'em, and how to fold 'em.", getting better each time. IT'S ALL GOOD! (Secret hint: That's also my new book's title!) And remember: "You never count your money, when you're sittin' at the table. They'll be time enough for countin', when the dealin's done." RIP Kenny Rogers...The MAGIC lives FOREVER! :) <3 #Magic #Magician #AmazingMisterJ #KennyRogers #TheGambler #KnowWhenToHoldEm ... See MoreSee Less

Didja hear CHUCK NORRIS was exposed to the Coronavirus?? The virus is now in quarantine for 2 weeks!! :) Hope the attached pics give you a laugh, during these topsy-turvy times. Didja also know our beloved Martial Arts master turned 80 (!) just last week?? Yep! You'll be pleased to know that in person, he's the coolest guy going (plus he loved his goofy Mr. J balloon gift too). Life is still MAGIC, and we will all get through this together. (Besides...CHUCK is on OUR side!) ;) "Keep your face always toward the sunlight, and the shadows fall behind you." -Walt Whitman #Magic #Balloons #StayPositive #AmazingMisterJ #ChuckNorris #Coronavirus #RoundhouseKick ...

Jolly Good Magic Fun...THANK YOU, SACKVILLE! Holy turnout, Batman! A SELLOUT capacity crowd, and very sorry for the 100+ we had to TURN AWAY- (lined up all the way out the door!)- but just for showing up you all still receive a FREE Amazing Mr. J Comic Book, and FREE Magic Wand by mail!) Funny story from the Magic Show for you: Asked a young boy "What's your name?", he replied "MAX!", so then asked him what he'd like to eat for lunch from all the items on 'Mr. J's Magic Menu.' Examining all his options, and taking time to think, he pointed and shouted "French Fries!" So, I made some REAL French Fries appear! Handed him his FREE prize choice, (which MAGICALLY appeared at his random request out of nowhere), and said: "Here ya go, MAX!" He looked amazed (which was the point), so I continued: "You look surprised! Betcha didn't think you'd see French Fries appear like that, huh, MAX?" (Now get this): He hilariously yelled back: "No, no, it's not the fries...HOW did you guess my NAME??!?" #Magic #Magician #AmazingMisterJ #ShortMemory ... See MoreSee Less
