awesome! My son was dying with laughter!"
"The Empty Pot:
"What Fellow Librarians Say;
Can Get These Impressive Results Too!"
was really exceptional is the way you blended this summer's theme,
"One World, Many Stories," into your performance. You
fully reinforced the message that Los Angeles Public Library wants
youngsters to take to heart: read, learn, and enjoy the public
library. The audience of kids, parents, caretakers, and counselors
enjoyed the playful way you integrated music, stories, comedy, magic and
audience participation. The adults were mesmerized and the kids were
enthralled by the magic of Jersey Jim. Thank you for bringing the
joy of magic to so many this morning!"
Librarian, Tujunga Branch, Los Angeles Public Library
liked how the children were participating with enthusiasm and the
combining of stories to encourage the kids to read. You gotta get
Jersey Jim if you want the kids to enjoy your program. Very, very
good. We’ll get him again.”
Children’s Librarian, Signal Hill Library
program was great! And you did indeed go above and beyond...I
liked the way you incorporated the stories into your magic show. You
didn't just say "Reading is Magic," you actually gave short
synopses of...different multicultural children's stories and wove
them into your program. You generated interest in children's
literature for not only the children but their parents as well."
--Roberta Marquez, Library Manager, South El Monte Library
