9788394216900: Children's Book of Magic: 30 Magic Tricks for Young Wizards

Children's Book of Magic will take every child into a fascinating world of magic and illusion. The secrets are revealed by a young, yet famous illusionist Konrad Modzelewski. The book contains 30 beautifully illustrated cartoons as well as the trick explained, along with the tips and additional information on how to perform it. The tricks are of different difficulty levels, therefore they are recommended both for small children aged 4 and older ones up to 9. It's a great opportunity for valuable family moments: younger kids can learn the tricks with the help of parents or siblings, and older ones can show off the tricks they mastered to family members or friends!

Review:

This colorful children's book for ages 4-9 starts off with the Golden Rules of performing magic tricks. I am sure the third rule of "practice makes perfect" hits home in all walks of life so why not start this good habit right from the get go? This concept is a wonderful educational tool. Two little characters...a young boy and girl add to this delightful book by introducing each new trick. The magic "secret" is then demonstrated with several illustrations to teach the young reading audience just how to perform the mysterious act with the magical skill required. I like the additional tips given after each lesson. This provides the young child a better chance of becoming the expert magician that he/she is aspiring to be. There are a variety of skill levels when it comes to the ease or difficulty of performing each magic trick. The little white rabbit/rabbits do an excellent job of letting the child know which tricks are easier or more difficult to perform. They helpfully sit in a hat at the corner of each page to give the performer an indication of the effort needed to perform each trick. From card tricks, to mind reading, to using the simple tools of a child's own fingers and hands, this interesting book is bound to amuse many an entertainer which may very well include both the younger and older reading audiences. Good stuff! --Amazon

This is really cute book, and I wish that I had known how about this when mine were younger. I definitely can see how this would have been a million pounds of fun! Since this book is made to entice kids, it is definitely awesome for keeping their attention and helping their brains to grow! There's really no other way to say that, any time do you use something that is interesting to a kid, than the benefits that come from them being interested can be so awesome. I have definitely never liked when you get a book of fun things to do, and then u have to make a 45 page shopping list in order to be able to do the things that are in the book. In this one, all you pretty much need is items that are around your house, markers, coins, a little bit of string. Does that was definitely made for kids in mind, & I definitely love that. I would recommend this book for parents you have fun with their little ones, especially on a rainy day. I don't know why, but this reminds me of rainy days. --Amazon

'Children's Book of Magic: 30 Magic Tricks for Young Wizards' is a well illustrated book of tricks that is targeted for ages 4-9. I had the grandchildren visiting so we had ages from 6-60 and we all had hours of fun and loved the book. In the Table of Contents (the book calls it, 'Find Your Favorite Trick!') the tricks are listed, what props you need, and how difficult it is. The difficulty rating is done by using an image of one to three rabbits in a hat: one being the easiest. I found this part of the book extremely helpful when choosing which trick to give to which child according to their difficulty rating. The tricks are presented in a comic book format showing the character doing the trick and what the audience will see. This part also includes what you might say to introduce the trick, for example, by asking someone for a coin or telling them that you can read their thoughts. After each trick is the 'Secret' page. It tells you how to do the trick in easy, clearly stated steps. Also included on this page is 'Advice Without Price' which gives hints and/or alternatives to use to make the trick more shocking. What I consider a big advantage about this book is that all the tricks needed props that almost any person would already have in their house already. Just to give you an idea, some of the props needed are: a deck of cards, three paperclips, and a straw, There was no need to go buy anything. To top that off, the tricks really do work; I never found those missing coins yet! --Amazon
