“Cris Johnson presented a wonderful Dr. Seuss-themed magic show for our 425 Pre K-kindergarten and 1st grade students at Jackson Primary School. Not only were the all of the students laughing , mesmerized, and completely engaged but Cris’s overall presentation included great messages for our children reflecting from the life lessons that are touched upon in many of  Dr. Seuss’s books. The students were saying, ‘I loved that guy!’ His ability to intertwine these important concepts  while emphasizing reading in a humorous and a magical fashion made for an incredible assembly to help kick off our PARP reading program this year.”

“Cris was fabulous! He had the students glued to him the entire time and even had the adults laughing. The students completely understood the important message and went home telling their parents…”

“WOW! You did a great job engaging the students with the magic tricks which were related to the Dr. Seuss theme. The crowd interaction and participation was also very well done.  Thank you for accommodating our three sessions!  It really helped the kids stay focused!

The kids loved the last act where you stare at the spinning wheel and the person’s head expands/shrinks, pulling out the huge wand, when the table floated, when the eyes moved on the Cat in the Hat drawing on the whiteboard, and in particular all of the magic wands you had. They thought it was so funny to see so many!

Here are a few comments from our teachers: ‘I loved the way he had the students leave quietly,’ ‘Loved it! So kid-friendly! Students were so engaged and excellent listeners! So many references to so many Dr. Seuss books! The students kept talking about it, when we got back to the classroom! They loved it.’”
