Traveling magic show makes reading a blast
Placeholder Image

CLAFLIN —Fizz, Boom, Read! The Claflin Independent Township Library will feature the magic and comedy of Dan Dan the Magic Man. The Great Bend High School teacher and native Kansan will bring his traveling show to the annual summer reading program at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, June 3.
Dan’s all new program will guide young readers into a world of science and illusion while encouraging them to interact with their library in a fun and positive way. The 40 minute show will highlight science themed children’s literature 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 13 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.
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 “Fizz, Boom, Read” magic show make reading enjoyable and appealing to young people.
They will meet every Tuesday for six weeks.
Admission is free and everyone is invited.
