I Love to Read Month is coming and it is fun to see the students enjoy the comedy antics of Mr. Norm and the Reading is Magic School Assembly Presentation.

Norm is a best selling author who teaches a couple tricks from his books that are in school libraries across North America and around the world.

Minnesota Magician entertains at Waconia Library

Magic shows are fun for every one.  This Minnesota Magician takes his program on the road to libraries all this week across Carver County.  He did two Magic shows in Chanhassen on Tuesday and two magic trick shows in Chaska at the library on Wednesday.

The goal of the presentation is to encourage reading and get kids excited about going to the library.  “You can find books about hobbies, interests and jobs.”

The funny magic show is titled “The Reading Magician” and has appeared at hundreds of libraries over the past 30 years.  It is fun for library summer reading programs in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

K. The Associate Librarian wrote a nice note… “Norm’s magic was wonderful. The kids were talking about it as they were checking out the books.”

It was so fun to bring the comedy magic to the banquet for the Sons of Norway recently.  There were many laughs and lots of involvement from the audience.  One gentleman’s dollar turned into a $20 and he was trilled!  He said that was fantastic magic.

After the show many others came over to say, “please give me a business card, as I am part of another group that would love this entertainment for banquets.”

The person in charge of the event said, “That was wonderful, everyone had a great time.”
