What Your Peers are Saying about the Best Texas Author Visit available!

Philip Gaudette; Principal, East Bernard ISD

 Mr. Franklin presented his Color My World to our Pre-K through 4th grade (350 students total).  It was THE most excellent assembly we have had in the 15+ years I have been in this school!  His humor, captivating presence, and kid-paced delivery held the attention of the entire student body and faculty.  He provided skill sets for our kids in a wide variety of life settings, such as, family, disabilities, culture, race, bullying, and good citizenship.  I look forward to having him back, and I gladly give him my highest recommendation for future engagements!

Julian Franklin has been a part of Jennie Reid's school year for the past 10 years or so. Julian's impact on the students can be felt well after the day of his performance. His mention of particular books in his shows translates into heightened interest in those library books, as well as others like them. The subject matter ties into the curriculum in a fun and creative way, a way that causes the students to remember what they have learned. Julian's enthusiasm for what he does makes his visits a joy and our year is not complete with a visit from Julian!

Katy Morris; 6th Grade Teacher

I was not really looking forward to this program because I thought my 6th graders might not be interested. A lot of the  programs we get in elementary schools are really geared for the lower grades. However, the program was SUPER! I saw interest from ALL grades (PK-6th). Everyone sat quietly smiling and when you asked for volunteers even the older students were enthusiastically raising their hands. Thanks for coming to our school! Others NEED to hear your message.

 Julian Franklin is a master presenter.  He is talented, funny, and students are engaged in all of his presentations.  And as an added bonus - Julian gives a great message in a kid friendly way.  We will definitely be inviting Julian Franklin back to our school! 

Terri Benavides; Librarian, Mission CISD

 Students of all ages love the shows Julian Franklin presents. They can’t stop talking about what they saw and learned afterwards. His management of large groups of children is impressive.  He is also the easiest presenter to work with, from scheduling through the actual presentation. I highly recommend all his programs! 

Xavier; 2nd Grade Student, Katy ISD

That was the second best magic show I have ever saw [sic]. But one thing is for shore [sic]. It was the funniest!
