Always a great performance!
Steve Somers always gives a professional and entertaining show, no matter what the theme is. He is one of the only performers I know who consistently showcases specific books in his programs. He is always mindful of libraries’ literacy goals and he focuses on the importance of reading and the joy of reading in every single show. We had Jingle Bell Magic in December 2019 and the children were absolutely delighted. The laughter and applause were proof that everyone enjoyed the show. Children and adults lined up to pet Snowball the bunny and expressed their appreciation for a terrific show. Thanks, Steve, for book talking and providing quality educational entertainment!
Audience loves Hopper!
A great show that entertains the whole family.
Amazing time for students and staff
Steve is a delight to work with and the show is phenomenal. The students and staff laughed and learned throughout the entire performance. We will welcome Steve back again and again!
Always Highlights Books and Reading!
One of my favorite aspects of Steve Somers’ shows is that he always, always stresses the importance of reading and imagination. He does great mini-booktalks in every show, highlighting books that are relevant to his topic and of interest to kids. People ask for books after his performances thanks to him giving attention to books and reading. He is reliable, professional, always on time and so easy to work with. His magic and message are great for all ages and he has a wonderful selection of shows to offer. Steve works to create new shows for each summer’s reading program theme, too, so you can book him in advance knowing you will have a terrific show for your library. Thank you, Steve Somers! You are an amazing teacher!
An Absolute Professional
We were very happy to invite Steve Somers back to our library this summer. From my initial booking request to the clean-up after the show, Steve was an absolute professional. When you book an Amazing Teacher program you are getting his years of experience as an educator which truly shines through. My library patrons could not stop raving about the show and asking for him to come back next year. Thank you for the amazing program!
Summer 2019 Space Trek Program
We have enjoyed Steve Somers’ programs for several years and always find him to be organized, helpful, professional and very entertaining for children and parents. He is always on time and not only offers a fantastic and educational program but helps promote with great posters and bookmarks–and he donates a children’s book! We look forward to his visiting The Archdale Public Library in the future.
Students were very engaged during the show.
This is a fantastic show. It is very entertaining and presents a great message!!
Mr. Somers performed two captivating shows for our students and parents. His shows stress the importance of reading while entertaining the students with magic. We can not wait to have Mr. Somers back in 2020!
Steve Somers, The Amazing Teacher Never Disappoints!!
Steve is a returning favorite to our Community Reading Festival each year. He is engaging and entertaining for children and parents. He is the kind of entertainment needed for the over 1200 participants we have each year! His show is always a positive feedback comment we have on our evaluation cards. He is truly AMAZING!!
Steve gave a wonderful performance!! The students and staff enjoyed it immensely. The children have been checking out magic books ever since. A veteran teacher who will be retiring this year told me that in all of her years of teaching this was the best assembly she had ever been too! Another teacher commented what a wonderful job Steve did dismissing the children…they were so quiet and calm! Overall, it was a fantastic show!
Students loved it!
The Salute to Seuss show entertained students and staff. Students were amazed by the magic and staff loved the humor. I already plan to bring back Steve and encourage others to see his show as well!
Steve Somers Amazes again!
Steve Somers Amazes students and teachers again! Once again Steve provided a show that was entertaining and amazing to all who watched! K through 5th grade and the staff were enthralled! His magic tricks wove seamlessly into a performance that focused on books and curriculum infused with character! They are already asking me when he will be back! I’ve had him 5 years in a row and every year is different and great!

Edge of Seat
What an amazing program to kick off Read Across America week! It was fun to see the students on the edge of their seats awaiting what might come next!
Fun filled day!
The students and staff at Morgan Elementary are still talking about Mr. Somers and all the magic tricks! The Celebrate Reading show was a perfect choice as we start our Bikes for Books program to encourage reading. Steve’s program is organized, entertaining, and requires very little prep time for the school. He brings everything! What a fun filled day!
The students are still talking about Celebrate Seuss! Everyone enjoyed the show – from preschoolers to 5th graders! Thanks for the great learning opportunity!
Good Clean Entertainment
We were able to book Steve on short notice and our group really enjoyed the fun. Steve didn’t know that I had invited our Child Development Center Children in as well, so he quickly switched gears (his program) to appeal to the children. The Seniors enjoyed watching the children’s participation and ALL enjoyed petting the rabbit!
Steve performed his Arctic Express and Jingle Bell Magic shows at our library branches, and our kids loved it! These high-energy shows got the whole audience into the holiday spirit with exciting magic tricks that had even the adults stumped! The action, humor and music kept even the youngest children engaged, and they all lined up eagerly afterwards to pet Snowball the rabbit. I had multiple families come up to tell me how much they enjoyed the performance. Having Steve at our library was a great experience!
Engaging educational show
The students, parents, and teachers loved this show. He kept everyone actively engaged with his wonderful magic and sense of humor, but managed to teach reading skills at the same time. I would hightly recommend this to any school.
The Amazing Teacher show is highly engaging. Children and Adults alike laugh throughout the performance. It has a great message encouraging our students to read. We always enjoy when the Amazing Teacher comes to school.
We truly enjoyed Steve’s program. He had magic which I personally had not seen before. All the children had a great time, as well as the adults.

This show is TRULY amazing!
Mr. Somers never fails to mesmerize our students! We get so excited every time he visits our school! He IS truly amazing!
Engaging and Entertaining
I was a little worried that the program might not appeal to my middle school students, but WOW! Even my 8th graders were on the edge of their seats straining to see what was happening. We held a morning program, but all of our students were still talking about it through the afternoon. Multiple students came to see me in the library afterward to check out books on magic. Steve was extremely easy and professional to work with and very prompt in all of his communications with me. What a memorable way to celebrate our school’s reading accomplishment!
Mr. Somers was AMAZING! His Standing Tall show is packed with inspiration on making good choices and being a hero. For 50 minutes, nearly 600 students sat quietly and intently. He brings the books to life through his magic. I highly recommend getting The Amazing Teacher to your school!
Steve does a fabulous job relating to young children with important character building messages through exciting magic and wonderful books! He has a way with talking the the students so they can understand his wonderful messages!
Steve is everything we had hoped for and more. He captivated kids and adults alike with a very heart-warming performance culminating the virtues of courage, patience, and kindness that our UPWARD players and cheerleaders learned throughout their season. Our Pastor, Children’s Minister, parents, and myself were thoroughly impressed with the magic and storytelling that took place. WE WILL DEFINITELY have Steve and his wife back!
The students and teachers once again enjoyed a great show on Friday! Build It! Thanks, Steve, for making reading exciting for the kids!
This is probably my fifth time seeing your performance. You always do a wonderful job. The students are engaged and have so much fun!
Entertaining and Educational
Our school recently enjoyed another performance by the Amazing Teacher, Steve Somers. His “Arctic Express” program entertains and educates students about Christmas traditions around the world. He uses literary selections to introduce each cultural celebration, along with magic tricks and other fun activities. The best part is when he makes it “snow” at the end of the show! Teachers ask for him to come back again and again, and students of all ages enjoy his shows.
Entertaining and Educational
The Amazing Teacher did a wonderful job during four assemblies at our school. I was particularly impressed with his behavior management which fit right in line with our schools PBIS initiative. In addition, the Amazing Teacher differentiated his shows, accounting for the developmental differences between the ages/grade levels. Thank you, Amazing Teacher!

Steve’s Programs are Great!
The students have enjoyed each program that Steve has presented, and this is the third year he has been at my school. They always talk about “the Magician” Steve’s programs are great, and the children will love them.
Mission Accomplished! He was Great!
I got a lot of feedback from teachers saying they loved the program. I also had students coming to the library asking for the books featured. This is an e-mail a first grade teacher send me: “I just wanted you to know how much I loved the assembly yesterday! The kids couldn’t stop talking about it and were actually telling each other about the different things they wanted to look up when we have library next. Mission accomplished! He was great!”
Enthralling is the best word to describe Steve’s program. Steve is a natural storyteller and relates well with the children. They love his magic tricks and his “corny” jokes. The adults laughed as hard as the kids did and also appreciated the strong message about the value of books and reading. Steve is living his dream and enjoying every minute of it!
Engaging and Entertaining!
The faculty and staff loved the program and have expressed interest in having Steve come back to E. Wilson Morrison. the program was engaging and entertaining and that the students and faculty loved the program.
Great Show! It was engaging for students and parents! Kids love the magic and are learning while having fun!
