Great books make great readers! Our Bodacious Book Shows inspire kids to pick up and read books that are so fun they will want to read more.
Join hosts Bob Bookmark and Rita Digest for our most popular arts-in-education program, featuring the “Have You READ It?” Game Show that completely involves the whole audience with questions about great books — plus comic characters like Professor Fineprint, Ima Ryhma and Beatrice the Bookworm — and a book brought to life on stage with audience volunteers.
There are three different versions of the Bodacious Book Show so we can return to your school with all new material in the same fun show — or select a show to fit your reading program theme.
Educators tell us these shows really motivate kids to read:
“A fantastic and motivating reading program.
— Teacher, South Salem
“The show was carefully organized, wonderfully relevant to the PARP theme and brilliantly presented with noted professionalism.
— Teacher, Yorktown
“Dynamite stage presence and humor — really appropriate for children and adults. We are ready for the sequel!
— Teacher, Hempstead
“Keep doing what you are doing. Fantastic program!
— Administrator, Freeport
And it’s not just for schools:
“Wow! Your Book Show was Bodacious, indeed, and just what was called for to celebrate the accomplishments of our summer readers...You clearly know your kids and your books. I don’t know when we’ve had such good feedback after a show.
