Most books on performing magic for children center on the question, "What can we do to entertain children?" This book approaches the problem from the opposite end. "What do children need to be entertained?" By centering on the children's requirement, rather than on our own, an understanding is created from which all questions about performing magic for children are easily answered.
In this landmark book, the authors - both specialists in early childhood education and professional magicians - provide expert guidance on how to develop a performing persona and an act suitable for children. In addition, they provide an enormous amount of practical advice on topics ranging from how to pace an act to how to prevent children from storming the stage.
