Testimonials

Bill Greenberg presents his book with an explosion of energy and excitement. He brings his characters to life as he reads the dialog with whimsical voices and playful expressions. My students and I were drawn immediately into the story and were amazed by the fascinating magic tricks. The students, as well as the teachers, were overcome with laughter again and again. Bill Greenberg’s author assembly is a treat for all!

Students at Robert Taylor Elementary were enthralled with the high energy of Bill Greenberg’s assembly. His varied style, including magic, music, and storytelling kept the audience captivated.  Students were talking about the assembly days after it was over.  Students also asked if Bill Greenberg would be coming back to do another assembly. This was a high quality assembly for students.

My students don’t attend Story Time Magic with Bill Greenberg; they become part of the storytelling experience. Bill uses music, rhyme, laughter, dancing and magic tricks to bring children into the adventure. Bill’s enthusiasm is hypnotic to children and adults. All ages love his antics and want to participate in the fun!

Wow! What a fabulous “author assembly”! Bill Greenberg does a wonderful job of engaging students! He weaves the book and interactions together so nicely that students are entertained as well as instructed. Mr. Greenberg has a keen grasp of magic. His tricks are awesome and the students are enthralled. How does he do that??? I recommend this program to any group of students. They will absolutely love it!

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for another wonderful assembly. As always, the kids had a great time being amazed by your magic tricks. As we re-entered the classroom, many of my kindergartners were trying to imitate your many voices and your magic tricks. It was obvious that you made a lasting impression on them. Thank you again for all your many talents that you share with children and for making reading and learning so much fun!
