A group of 127 children and parents watched Rav the Magician make a dragon’s breath shoot out of a magical book and turn snowballs into shapes June 18 at Mountain House Branch Library.

Rav, who has been doing magic for 27 years, said libraries are his favorite places to perform, because they get children excited to read and look at books.

The magic show was intended to help make families aware of the “Reading is So Delicious” summer reading program at the county libraries.

Details about future activities at the library can be found at www.ssjcpl.org/locations/county/mhouse.html.
