There are plenty of books that tell you what to perform for children. Now there’’s a book that tells you everything the other books leave out: how to perform for children — and why.

In Performing Magic for Children, Michael Sondermeyer and Uwe Schenk, who are not only professional magicians but also educational specialists, discuss every aspect of this difficult branch of magic, including:

  • what children need from a magic performance
  • the role of the performer
  • how to develop a suitable performing persona
  • how to select appropriate tricks for children
  • how to make standard tricks suit children
  • the pros and cons of using live animals
  • how to design a successful act
  • pacing, restlessness and attention spans
  • how to select a child to assist
  • how to handle infants, teenagers & adults
  • what to do when a child cries
  • how to prevent children from storming the stage at the end of the show

and much more. In addition, two professional acts are described in which the authors explain exactly what they do, and why they do it that way.

Referred to by many professional children’s performers as “the book on kid shows” and “the Bible on working for children”, this book is a must-have for anybody interested in performing magic for young audiences.
