ONE WORLD … SO MANY STORIES! People say that there are only seven wonders of the
world. Professor Marvel has set out to prove them wrong.
Each time a
book is opened regular readers have the opportunity to explore amazing worlds, meet outrageous
characters, and learn how to do the most extraordinary things. In short, every book is in and of itself a world of
Marvel’s World of Wonders provides a creative and
interactive atmosphere where kids quickly learn that through reading anything is
The adventure begins with
the professor traveling through India (courtesy of “Around the World in 80 Days”) and then onto
England to introduce the kids to “The Secret Garden”. The kids will gasp as they witness a rose bush blooming right
in front of their eyes.
From there on its non-stop
action as eight different books are featured and then illustrated with magic and illusion woven
throughout their pages – magic especially designed to illustrate each book introduced during the
show. Topical and classical books are selected
based upon a graduated scale for kindergarten through fifth grade.
Marvel’s World of Wonders is a fully themed show featuring a colorful backdrop, special costumes,
interactive theatre (with lots of audience participation),
story-telling, comedy, and magic aimed at helping kids discover the rewards found within the
pages of a book. After all, inspiring books deserve
an inspiring show.
Like all of
our themed reading shows Professor Marvel’s World of Wonders focuses on books and
literacy. Librarians love our shows because we pack
a powerful message that motivates kids to read.
Kids love our shows because they are just plain FUN!
