age group, but we certainly 'struck gold' when we hired Mr. Taylor
for the job! He definitely understands how to keep younger
children engaged through interaction, pacing, and by providing
entertainment that is developmentally appropriate... With over
200 people in attendance, the show was a huge success..!"

"We again had Morris the Magician for the young preschool
ages. He was fantastic! He had the kids hopping with anticipation
and parents and children laughing out loud... Would I invite him
back again? YES, YES YES. In fact, I have talked to my co-
workers and we will be having him again for the older children..!
...My preschoolers' parents have asked to let them know ahead
of time when we will have him again so they can put him on the
calendar. I know that we will have his program filled without much
publicity, just from word of mouth -- he's that good."

each child appeared to connect with him like a partner. As the

of wonderment of what had just happened -- it was magic!"
