“Cris’ program ‘I Love to Read’ was incredible. It culminated with Eggert Elementary Schools month long PARP (Parents As Reading Partners) program perfectly.  He not only captivate the students and teachers with his magic, he effortlessly interwoven the importance of reading.  He had complete control of the audience and even got the students to voluntarily leave silently.  He was a pleasure to work with, had an understanding of the school climate and the needs of the teachers.   I highly recommend Cris without hesitation.”

“Our elementary school just had Cris Johnson in, to present his “I LOVE TO READ” program.  It was wonderful!  The children were completely engaged from beginning to end.  Cris used student volunteers for some of his magic, which kept the interest level high.  He cleverly wove in the theme of the program and had humorous stories to illustrate his points.  The adults were just as entertained as the students.  He is a great magician. He kept all of us wondering, “How did he do that?”  I would highly recommend having Cris Johnson in to present a program for your school.  It is well worth it.”
