CLAFLIN —Dan Dan the Magic Man, the traveling library magician, is coming to town this month to help our young people get excited about books and reading. Dan Dan the Magic Man will bring his unique blend of comedy and magic to the annual summer reading program at 2 p.m. on Thursday, June 7.
Dan’s all new program will take young readers on a mystical journey through a world of dreams, magic, and fun while encouraging them to interact with their library in a fun and positive way. The 40 minute show will highlight current and according to Heath will be an, “action packed program that will grab the attention of children of all ages (and fun loving adults, too). “Over the past 11 years this traveling family show has performed for pre-k through high school audiences and always receives enthusiastic responses to their amazing magic tricks, hilarious age-appropriate humor, and live animals. “Children love live animals, and these critters are always a huge hit with our young readers. The summer reading program provides local children the opportunity to develop reading skills, share in fun activities, and experience the benefits of the local public library. Studies have shown that children who continue to read during the summer perform better in the fall when school resumes. Summer reading programs like Dan Dan’s ‘The Magic World of Dreams” magic show make reading enjoyable and appealing to young people.
Admission is free and everyone is invited to enjoy a good time at their local library with Dan Dan the Magic Man at 2 p.m. at the Independent Township Library.
