“John Abrams has been our Summer Reading Finale for the past 7 years at our library.  There are many reasons he has been back so many times.  For starters, he is an awesome performer; he keeps the kids engaged and entertained.  Parents have told me there is something different about him compared to the other performers, he is a true performer and truly enjoys what he does.  His show is non-stop magic tricks and fun.  Many of the children get called up to assist him with different magic tricks; there is laughing throughout the show.  He knows how to keep the audience’s attention, even in a room with 250 people!  One year we decided to pick different performers for our Summer Reading schedule; not including John Abrams was a mistake.  We received so many comments about bringing John back that I decided to make his show the Finale every year.  It is also our most attended program with between 200-300 attendees.  You will not be disappointed with John’s show.  I highly recommend him.” – Jeremy Williams – Children’s Librarian – Rancho San Diego

“Every year John Abrams comes to our Library. And every year we have 250-300+ children attend this amazing Animal Magic show.  Humor, music, magic tricks and animals are a great combination for a fun filled afternoon! Thank you John for doing what you do and caring about our children!”  Cindi Bouvier – Children’s Librarian – Escondido Library

“John Abrams is an absolute delight and a stellar performer. I have seen, and known John, since I first started at the Glendora Public Library (about eight years ago) and have loved booking him since.  John’s show is not only entertaining, but informative especially when he has young children saying things like “nocturnal” (it was hilarious). What’s awesome about John’s so is that it appeals to everyone of every age;  we had a great mixture of children, adults, and seniors. In fact, one of our local computer users was thoroughly entertained and noted that John has amazing technique and skill.

The best part about John (other than his awesome magic abilities) is his sense of humor! I also want to point out that he had a very young crowd and most of them were so captivated and happy during the entire show.  I was so happy to see Chili the Chinchilla and his friends and I can’t wait to see them again this summer “crossing my fingers’

I highly recommend John Abrams’ Animal Magic Show because you really get a class act that many families will enjoy for years and years to come!” Deborah Takahashi – Children’s Librarian – Pasadena Libraries
