This show will get kids excited about the world around them and inspire them to read books from their local library. During the show, Leif will explain how he got his start as a magician at 8 years old by taking out books from the local library.

Ali K. Zam Productions provides everything required for the performance including a professional sound system and backdrop. You only need to provide the audience and a power outlet! Included is a free downloadable poster (in PDF) to promote the show.

I would absolutely recommend Leif David’s magic shows. Parents, teachers, and students loved every minute. Great crowd control with humour and so much fun!

Jess Dafoe, Terrace Public Library

We love the way you wove reading into the show. It was all excellent. We would recommend Leif to anyone! Another librarian told us you were wonderful and you exceeded even her glowing praise! Well done!

Virginia Macleod, Vancouver Island Regional Library – Sidney / North Saanich

From the moment the show began, Leif had the kids under his spell! Not only that, but the parents were entranced too. The magic was delightful, but Leif’s performance brought the show to the next level. His wacky enthusiasm and instant rapport with his volunteers created more laughter than I’ve heard in the library all summer.

Nicholas Guerreiro, Greater Victoria Public Library – Sannich Centennial

Everyone had a wonderful time at yesterday’s show! The kids and parents were smiling and laughing the entire time. It was the first time I have ever seen you perform and I was absolutely blown away. Such a wonderful start to the summer and the Summer Reading Club here in Falkland.”

Diana McCarthy, Okanagan Regional Library – Falkland

Everything about Leif’s show is fantastic. His magic is entertaining for all ages and the way he interacts with the kids is amazing. Everyone walks away happy and laughing.

Ardie Burnham, Okanagan Regional Library – Salmon Arm

Highly recommended. Kids love him. Humour is fun and accessible. Very professional.

Kendra Runnalls, Okanagan Regional Library – Revelstoke

It was fantastic. Lots of fun had by all. I’m looking forward to when you come back again next year.

Rita Verokosky, Okanagan Regional Library – Oyama

Leif’s show is different every time I see him. He’s engaging: has the kids laughing, screaming, participating, and always wanting more. The parents leave thoroughly impressed. Makes for a fun and happy environment.

Judy Millard, Okanagan Regional Library – Kelowna

The kids were so engaged and were sitting on the edge of their seats! Amazing performance! We LOVE Leif! He needs to keep coming back. Very professionally done – talented performer.

Debra Holley, Okanagan Regional Library – Keremeos

The performance was excellent. It was far beyond my expectations. I loved that you designed the show to be specific to the Summer Reading Club theme and that you promoted reading and the library. The show had a great message and the kids clearly loved it!

Robin Kelley, Vancouver Island Regional Library – Port Alberni

Leif is hilariously entertaining! Library customers of all ages enjoyed his show.

Ginger Warden, Vancouver Island Regional Library – Nanaimo North Branch

This is the third year we have had Leif perform at our summer reading club wrap-up party. He is a hit with the parents and kids alike! Leif is an excellent performer who knows just how to keep kids entertained and laughing. At the end of today’s show I had parents asking if he’d be back next year!

Julie Carter, Vancouver Island Regional Library – Nanaimo Wellington

We are a small branch and have limited resources to spend on the Summer Reading Club. This magic show is worth every penny. Leif David promotes the library and literacy on top of his top rate magic! Excellent value and quality programming.

Raphael Desjarlais, Okanagan Regional Library – Peachland

I would like to thank you for being part of our Summer Reading Club program. You always deliver shows that are age appropriate and so entertaining. We love your playful goofiness and amazing tricks. The card race game in particular was highly interactive and fun for the participants and audience. You connect fabulously with kids and adults. Thank you once again for the action packed and fun programs. It was a pleasure having you with us this summer. I look forward to future programs with you.
