About the Author: David Kaye

Review: David Kaye (Silly Billy) reveals ten years worth of experience in dealing with the kids and the differences in age groups. The name of this booklet says it all. KID SHOW KLIFF NOTES
The Psychology of Performing Magic for Children
. There is more to performing for children, then presenting magic. They don't think like adults, they are brutally honest, and they are acting as they should for children. A understanding of what is going on in the minds of the little ones (in three different age groups) really makes your job as a kid show magician a lot easier. This booklet is highly recommended. Don't expect tricks here, just the facts on dealing with kids audience.
