Books! The Magic is Real!

Reading is Cool… Reading is Fun… READING ROCKS!!!

Reading is an essential life skill. It is an everyday, anywhere activity.

Without the ability to read well, children are limited in what they can accomplish. Most importantly, reading is essential because words build our foundation for ideas, expression, creativity, opinions, and beliefs.

Classic and current popular literature choices such as “Harry Potter”, “Diary of a Wimpy Kid”, “A Series of Unfortunate Events”, “Snowflake Bentley” and more!

Magician Joe Romano brings popular children’s books to life through the art of magic & illusion!

The Magic Is Real!” is an incredible magic show that uses plot lines from classic and current popular literature choices such as “Harry Potter”, “Diary of a Wimpy Kid”, “A Series of Unfortunate Events”, “Snowflake Bentley” and more!  It’s no wonder your students will love this show.

“Books! The Magic is Real” is a fast paced production filled with music, comedy, audience interaction and or course….magic!  Even teachers find they draw inspiration from this production, which makes it easier to think of ways to help keep this energy flowing even after the assembly is over. The “bug” for reading gets going around, and soon everyone catches it. Joe motivates students by igniting a passion for reading all through the school year.

Joe has appeared in every major theme park in the United States including Universal Studios, Walt Disney World, Knott’s Berry Farm, Six Flags Texas and Six Flags America.

His appearances include The White House, Disney Cruise Lines and halftime appearances at The Washington Redskins football games.

Most recently, Romano was chosen to open for First Lady, Michele Obama at the “Read Across America” celebration at the Library of Congress.

NYC Reads 365 challenges New Yorkers to read every single day. Read for pleasure, read to find out, read to argue, read to persuade, read to laugh, read to cry, read to understand, read to forget. Help us create a new generation of readers.
