Prophetstown Elementary School held their Family Reading Night on Thursday.   Over 200 PES students, family members, and friends came out to enjoy books, snacks, crafts, and a magic show put on by Magic with the Meyers.

The Meyers react to a frog changing
into a prince during one of their tricks.

 

The magic show centered around tricks involving favorite Children's books.  The Meyers, from Ottawa, Ilinois have a grandchild in Kindergarten at the school and brought their show to entertain the students. Their show entitled; Reading is Wonder-Ful uses magic routines to encourage students to find wonder in reading. "Every book is magic." Stories about Curious George, Bartholomew Cubbins, Betsy Ross, Harry Houdini, and Abraham Lincoln were used with magic routines.
