If you have been hearing “I’m bored” a few too many times this summer, give this book to your kids and assign them a few magic tricks to perform after dinner. I guarantee they will put their devices down and stay busy perfecting their magic.

Just like the title states, there are thirty tricks to learn and perform ranging from card tricks to disappearing coins, to string and knot tricks, to visual tricks of the eye. All of them are easy for an elementary-aged child to learn and perform. The pages are full of pictures as well as step-by-step directions on how to carry out the trick and then a page giving the reader the real “secret” behind the trick.

The child is thrilled to learn the secret to the magic and then feel like they have one up on their parents or siblings while performing the trick.

Our daughter really loved the “Do as I Do” card trick and performed her magic to anyone that visited. Once she read the instructions and did a few practice run-throughs, she was ready to try it out. I was surprised how quickly she made the magic seem easy.

If you have a budding magician or a child that is looking for a challenge, I highly recommend this book of magic tricks. Performing magic encourages critical thinking and planning as well as creativity. I could see teachers using this as a quiet learning time in the classroom or homeschool parents using it as part of a science or art lesson. You never know when having a magic trick up your child’s sleeve will come in handy! They may just find a hidden talent they didn’t know they had.
