"How to Easily Get Elementary School Students Excited About Reading & Learning With Just One Magical Assembly Program!"

Educational Entertainment,

" entertaining way of reinforcing reading."
"The performance was great - the children were entertained and enthralled throughout the show! It was very appropriate for our audience. All the reminders of reading and learning made this program an entertaining way of reinforcing reading."
- Lisa Justman, Librarian, Tamarac Elementary School, Holtsville, NY

Dear School Representative,

According to the US Department of Education, children watch an average of 3 to 5 hours of television per day! This is directly related to the decline of reading skills in recent years in many school districts. As an educator, you know the importance of reading skills, and I'm sure you're concerned!

With these statistics, by the time a child leaves high school he or she has spent even more time in front of the TV than in the classroom! A big problem with our "MTV/Internet Society" is that children don't have the desire to sit down and read a good book. To be successful in life children must learn not only how to read, but to love to read!

Fortunately You Can Easily Do Something To Help Instill A Desire And Passion For Reading Within Your Students!...

My name is Robert McEntee ("Magic Bob") and I'm a motivational speaker for children, as well as a professional magician. You may have heard about my school programs previously, but I urge you to do your school a favor and read this letter carefully, or please give it to the person who is responsible!

Just imagine your students joyfully shouting "We love to read!"  during  a tremendously fun assembly program which the children remember for years to come! This BOCES accredited program is perfect for PARP Programs or book fairs, etc. The thoroughly engaging show makes your reading program unforgettable! Because it's so fun, children REALLY "GET" the reading and positive messages!

"Thank you Bob! You're performance was excellent. I have heard from quite a few parents how great you were and how you really did get the reading message to the children. I look forward to working with you again."
- Denise Moerler, Kramer Lane ES Plainview, NY.

"Thanks again for presenting at our NYSRA Annual Convention! We really appreciated it! They loved your program. Good luck with your future presentations."
- Lynne Brosch - Co-Chair, New York State Reading Assoc.


"Discover The Magic of  Reading!" is a wonderful  educational show, customized for kindergarten through elementary school classes. It combines visual demonstrations of captivating magic & illusions, audience participation, comedy, storytelling and music, with memorable messages which teach students the value of reading and learning skills, and the importance of using one's imagination!

Perhaps most important, students learn from the program that reading is a far greater imagination stimulator than TV! The program includes exciting presentations of  specific examples of various types of books (fairy tales, instructional books, etc), whereby students learn the differences between them, and the benefits of reading and learning from each. Your school will truly appreciate this program!!!

"Magic Bob related his entire performance to reading and how it will positively affect your entire life! The children had a marvellous time. The teachers thought the program was outstanding. Thank you!"
- Eva Hallam, teacher, Twin Pines ES, Brentwood, NY

Additionally, students benefit from other related positive themes in the program such as sharing, safety, self esteem, anti-bullying or acceptance of others, and belief  in oneself. It is important that you make time for this!!! Students are thrilled by this very lively, colorful, yet educational, extravaganza, especially with the current tremendous popularity of magic.

It can include a very magical, musical grand finale with mesmerizing special effects. Optional larger illusions can include appearing and disappearing bunny rabbits, or making a teacher or the Principal magically appearing to introduce the show! We can also saw him/her "in half" as a reading incentive or reward! Or why not float a student in the air or thrill them with an incredible, animated talking picture!


"The program was used to kick off PARP. The students were motivated and enthusiastic about reading. The reading connection was made over & over for the students. Highly recommended!"
- Norann McManus, Principal, William Deluca School, North Babylon

You will be amazed how this approximate 45 to 60 minute program dramatically boosts your students' enthusiasm for learning in the classroom. Yes, the program is lots of fun, which is why it is so effective, but it is also a real educational experience! One that will have a lasting impact on all who attend. If it's impossible to have the program during school hours, may I suggest the following...

For your convenience, I also offer a fantastic family program which is ideal for increasing budget vote enthusiasm, family nights, etc. This show also works incredibly well as a FUNdraiser through a no risk 50-50% ticket sale split. You can find information  on this guaranteed, easy fund-raising family show elsewhere on this site. If you prefer, you can simply call and leave your information on my answering machine, or e-mail me and I'll send the amazing details to you right away!

I customize each show action-packed show for your audience or special themes. Book these programs to thrill the children (and their families) with the magic and the positive themes emphasized!

"Words are not enough! The kids and faculty had a great time with you! You did a great job. P.A.R.P. is off to a great start. Thanks!"
- South Manor PTA, NY

"Great with youngsters and great with "cool" 5th & 6th graders. No "least favorite" parts. Great shows, very flexible, accommodating guy!"
- Roberta Ferris, Gardnertown Scl, Gardnertown, NY

Let me tell you how my background can work for you. I  graduated from Villanova University, as well as Mystery School, the world's top Magicians Theatrical School. This show comes with over 20 years of professional magic & motivational program experience. Your program will also benefit from my work as a four term President of the International Brotherhood of Magicians here on Long Island (Ring 317), and an active member in other top performers' organizations.

The fulfillment I get from motivating and educating children through magical "edutainment" means that schools get the best program at the lowest price of any comparable show!

This program has received rave reviews from numerous school districts, probably one in or near yours. I would be happy to give you as many references as you like. Countless audiences have also been thrilled by these performances at approximately 100 Long Island and Queens Libraries, book stores, day-cares, fairs, camps, cultural centers, and leading restaurants/catering halls, etc. Now you can put my experience to work for your school!

"Your show was very enjoyable. The children’s favorites were the talking face, fire illusions, and the audience participation. I would recommend this show to others because it is a good interactive show with the kids, very enthusiastic and emphasized use of imagination to encourage kids to read."
- Kathleen Kaiser, Huntington Elementary School, Norwich, CT

Charities and institutions such as Developmental Disabilities Institute, L. I. Youth Guidance, Special Olympics, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and Cerebral Palsy, etc., have used my show with great success to headline their fund-raisers and benefits. The show generated  tremendous enthusiasm and results for the sponsors at all of  these events and will  do the same at your school!

If you haven’t seen a sample of my show at a PTA Showcase, or heard about one that perhaps I did at another school in your district, I don't expect you to take my word that  you will be truly proud to present this show. Therefore, I have listed sample references, so you can see what people just like you have said about my programs.  Plus, I offer an unconditional guarantee as explained below, so you can't lose!


"Perfect price, well worth the money."
"Excellent show! Creative! Positive lessons made parents happy! Perfect price, well worth the money. One of our best shows ever! The visuals were clear & the stories simple. We liked how you reached all age groups (even parents) so no one was bored! Keep us up-to-date with all your programs. Thank you for your patience and your professionalism."
- Maryellen Cantanno, Freeport Library

I understand that your school's budget is probably very tight, and typically assembly programs are very expensive. Good programs are often $600-$700, and truthfully that's what this is worth, with all the work involved, and what your students gain from it. However, I'm not going to charge that...

Because I believe this program is so beneficial to your students, I don't want any schools to miss out simply due to a lack of funds. Therefore, I offer different versions of the show to fit into your budget. Bigger shows for example include one or more of the spectacular illusions described above. An additional discount is offered for multiple programs as well! Plus this program is eligible for NY BOCES and other funding, making the final cost to the school negligible! Smaller shows, classroom programs or instructional workshops, are priced even lower...

The program emphasizes reading as well as writing skills

"Thank you so much for the wonderful program! The students were engaged for the ENTIRE hour and many of them were commenting afterwards "This was the coolest assembly EVER!" I actually had a 1st grade student come to me after asking about the Dewey Decimal Number for the magic books! :) Thank you for showing everyone how cool reading can be!"
- Jennifer Ostrander Music Teacher/Assembly Coordinator
  Charles Johnson ES, Endicott, NY

Therefore please call me for a customized price quote ideal for your school. It will be reasonable because I know after you see my work and the enthusiastic response it generates, you'll want me back again and again. If the reduced fee is still a problem, you could simply ask each student to bring in a $1. I know this can be a hassle, but I'll make it easy for you. I'll provide you with a camera ready instructional flyer for you to copy and give to each child to bring home. After the program, simply write me a check, and the PTA keeps any left over money!

Your school may not need to collect funds, but this is an example of an easy, alternative funding method so that your school does not have to miss this wonderful program. In fact, you may even make a bit of money for your treasury in the process!

Remember, this program:

  1. Encourages your students to read more and love it!
  2. Teaches your students about the different types of books, and how they can benefit from each!
  3. Increases your students' enthusiasm for learning in general!

"It was a great show, even better than I had anticipated. Everything was very age appropriate. Our favorite parts were the levitation, sawing the teacher in half and the grand finale with the candle. Fantastic overall! Thank you for putting on such a superb show, it was great how you tied in the importance of reading and believing in oneself!"
- Kathleen Lobben, Setauket School
