Magician Mike Klee presented his Dream Big and Read magic show at as part of Fairfax County Public Library's 2012 Summer Reading Program.
Each of Klee's tricks connected to a children’s' book, including:
- Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown
- Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak
- Flat Stanely by Jeff Brown
- Dream Big, Little Pig! by Kristi Yamaguchi
- Preschoolers through sixth graders read (or have read to them) 15 books.
- Students entering grades 7 - 12 read eight books.
Those who complete a reading log and return it to a library branch by Sept. 1 earn a coupon book with free and discounted items. Finishers are also entered into a drawing for the chance to win special prizes, including Sony E-Book Readers, Washington Nationals tickets, gift cards and books.
In addition, each county library branch has scheduled special programs throughout the summer. A complete list of events is on the library's website.
