Summary

Summary

What's more fun for children than seeing a magic show? Doing the magic themselves!

It's Magic! shows children how to perform amazing feats with cards, coins, dollar bills, numbers - and their minds. There are a number of "mental magic" tricks, and many more using materials readily available around the house, like string, rope, and handkerchiefs. Line drawings, step-by-step instructions, and a little practice will help children master the illusions of magic - and gain self confidence as well.

Henry Gordon's breezy introduction also offers practical tips for the would-be magician on the rules of "magicianship": never repeat a trick in front of the same audience; practice until a trick can be performed flawlessly; entertain wisely; and, most importantly, keep the secrets of magic secret!
