Now in it’s 15th season, Tommy's "MAGIC of Books" program is second to none as he promotes READING and BOOKS in this 45 minute magic show that inspires children to turn OFF their televisions and video games and turn ON to the THRILL OF READING!


The children will witness how reading inspires imagination as some very popular story books come to life. THE VELVETEEN RABBIT, THE SECRET GARDEN & CHARLOTTE'S WEB are a few of the books utilized in this exciting educational performance of fun and laughter!


A stuffed bunny becomes a real live bunny, as in the story of the Velveteen Rabbit! (the expressions from the children are worth the price of the show!)

Tommy also incorporates music into the program as he brings the story of The Secret Garden to life, producing bouquet after bouquet of gorgeous flowers which sets the stage for the rest of the program.


How about a visit from the only LITERATE spider in the world Charlotte, from the story Charlotte's Web.  Charlotte spins a magical web and writes a message in the center for all the children to go out and share with the world.


The children will be reminded to take responsibility when borrowing books from the library, as it wouldn't be fair to others if the book is returned damaged or destroyed. (Courtesy to others).


Fiction, Non Fiction, biographies… it's all here along with some very subtle moral messages such as being nice to others, makes this a "can't go wrong"  performance for your next school assembly or library event. (See the testimonials below).


“It was FABULOUS! The Magic of Books was absolutely wonderful! Tommy James not only entertains the students with skill and wit, but the teachers as well! He had the whole auditorium eating out of his hand throughout the entire performance! The books he showcased were of high interest and excellent representations of quality literature. He managed to tie in the love of books with fascinating magic tricks and hilarious banter. Never a dull moment, leaving the students wanting more, more, more! Both teachers and students alike are asking for his return again next year.”

Tommy's high-spirited and endearing personality introduced our students to beloved book characters, non-fiction topics and biographical content and left the students talking about reading and books. How perfect! You will love it!”
