Chris Lopez presents “Read for the Win” an educational reading magic show. This 45-minute show educates students about the importance of reading using magic as a tool to demonstrate how reading can trigger ones imagination and bring books to life. He also shares an easy to remember acronym his teacher taught him, R.E.A.D. = Read, Everyday, And Discover.
Sharing his experience as a child who had trouble reading, Chris explains that visiting a library and discovering a book on magic motivated him to want to read. He would practice every day reading the magic book and practicing what he read. This improved his memory, comprehension, and imagination, which in turn helped make him a better and more focused student in school, taught him the importance of studying, and the use of imagination to create original and fun routines for his magic shows.“Read for the Win” is Chris’s most popular elementary school and library show for the past three years. This show is full of interactive magic, music, laughter, and most importantly education. This show highly inspires children to discover a book and READ.
