Magic has always captivated and amazed children, but learning the secrets behind this mysterious art has never been easy — until now. Introducing Children's Book of Magic, an introduction to the world's most amazing illusionists, magic tricks and magicians.

Tracing the history of magic from its origins in Ancient Egypt to the rise of stage performance in the 1900s and up to and including magic of the present day, Magic also includes 20 tricks for kids to put on their own show by learning from the 8 schools of magic: production, vanishing, transformation, restoration, teleportation, escaping, levitation, and prediction. Card tricks, coin tricks, escapology, and more are presented in step-by-step sequences, while biography spreads highlight the great works of history's greatest magicians including Hieronymus Bosch, Harry Houdini, Howard Thurston, and modern day performers such as David Blaine and Dynamo.

With Children's Book of Magic kids can dive in and discover the secrets of sleight of hand, the power of performance, and the mysteries of misdirection needed to perfect their skills.

By Jessica Prescott

Learn how to play chess, the world’s most popular board game! It’s easy to learn, and anyone can play it. Jessica Prescott teaches you how you can get good at it and start winning. Improve your skills through 35 fun activities. This isn’t just a textbook about the rules of the game! Why not have a game of Pawn Football (pawns line up at their starting rank and race to the other side), or do the Queen Dance (make a checkmate using only a queen and king)? Try Scholar’s Mate: the four-move checkmate every beginner needs to know, and when you’re really good, play Bughouse, a crazy four-person game with two chess sets. All the activities have clear, colorful illustrations so you can see exactly where pieces should be on the chessboard. There are also helpful hints and tips throughout, and if you’ve ever forgotten how a piece moves or need to brush up on a rule, look at the Starting Out section for a reminder.

"Transform fluffy fuzz into cute critters!

Needle felting seems a lot more like magic than a craft. Imagine a cloud of soft wool fluff. Now imagine poking that fluff for a while with a special needle as, little by little, it turns into a sturdy, durable, adorable little animal. That's magic...warm, fuzzy magic.

With Felted Friends, young crafters can experience the magic of needle felting for themselves. Our exclusive needle-felting tool is designed specifically for newbies (10 and up). With each poke, the tool's three special needles tangle the strands of wool, making it dense and compact. Our detailed directions take readers step-by-step through the felting process. With these basic techniques, sculpting wool is simple.

The 56-page book contains beautifully illustrated instructions for making palm-sized pets — a cat, squirrel, rabbit, hedgehog, fox, and mouse. It comes complete with the felting tool, a foam block work surface, and 100% natural wool roving in six different colors. Not to mention a healthy helping of warm fuzzies.

Comes with:Felting tool, Foam block, 100% natural wool in six colors (black, lavender, blue, pink, gold, white)

Rain, rain, go away . . . actually, after seeing this activity book, kids will say: Rain, rain, please STAY! It’s so chock-full of fun things that it won’t matter what the weather is like. Children will never be bored when they can create a drawing of what a rooster might look like as a robot, finish silly sentences, and solve mini-crosswords. Or maybe they’ll lose their marbles playing the "Lost Your Marbles?" word search game.

Budding fashionistas can design a t-shirt on the page (and maybe a real one), while future rock ‘n’ roll stars can pick the perfect band name by picking from a word list or by randomly choosing phrases from the dictionary. A few games are meant for two—just in case a friend’s around. With tongue twisters to make you snort, "off with its head" fill-ins (where you chop off the first letter), and classic riddles and conundrums, you won’t care how hard it pours!
