Testimonials From Educators & Professionals
||"The program was varied and a pleasure for all ages. I appreciate your gift of interacting with kids; your flexibility, humor, and ability to honor each child who volunteers to help with your performance. Your efforts to teach the delights of magic to young people offer a caring and sustaining presence to the youth of our community. And you always tie your performances to the resources of the public library. I appreciate your support."
Sherri Douglas - Anchorage Public Library, Youth Services Coordinator; Anchorage, AK
WE HAD A BLAST! You are the champion when it comes to numbers of participants in a Summer Reading Program (177). Everyone had a great time including the adults and staff who were fortunate enough to be in the room" (for the performance.) "We now know why you are so loved by people all over Alaska. Count us in on your fan club. Thank you again!"
Jolee Ellis - Homer Library, Librarian, Homer, AK
"Thank you very much! The kids are still talking about it (the performance) this morning and were really excited. The show was great! It is being discussed about trying to have you come back in the spring so that says a lot!"
Terri Paulson - Butte Elementary, Library Media Specialist, M. Ed. Curriculum and Instruction: Technology; Palmer, AK
"Thank you for a wonderful day! I've received lots of positive feedback from staff. The kids nearly ran me over Thursday AM looking for magic books. The bookmarks are a hit and thank you for the new books and proclamations. How about writing a "How To" book on levitation for elementary students?! Thanks for making Halloween a delightful holiday for all. I've passed your info onto PTA. I think a fundraiser would be very successful."
Judy Redmond - Russian Jack Elementary, Librarian; Anchorage, AK
"Great job this year (like every year) the kids loved it and we had several comment cards saying the magician was the best/favorite part of the train ride!!"

"Good message about reading and great family time in the evening. I have had Don at my schools for the past 5 years. Staff and adults appreciate the Don's enthusiasm and genuine affection for the kids. (I would recommend this program to other interested schools.) And the price is right!"

"The highlight is (his) classroom (visit) time. (He) spends the entire day here and visits every classroom showing tricks and giving the children special time. Book the program - your students/children will be very happy!"
