Hi everyone,

Just curious what peoples top 3 favourite kids magic books are, or their top 3 that they found useful. I know it's down to personal preference. I've invested in Silly Billys Seriously Silly book and Chris T magicians just for fun book. Hopefully get through those in the next couple of weeks.

I’m not a fan of Silly Billy’s stuff, but Dynamike’s choice of Birthday Magicians Handbook by Dave Fiscus is spot on.

If you’re into customizing your show & routines, I recommend Kid-Show Magician’s Handbook by Tony Daniels.

And I learned a lot from Bruce Kalver’s Birthday Party Portfolio.

Another of my favorites was Children's Parties a Speciality by Peter D'Arcy.

David Ginn also has several excellent publications on kidshow magic.

And let’s not forget the Kid Stuff books by Frances Ireland Marshall.

A lot of these books may be dated, but the ideas and advice they offer are still relevant to this day.

David Ginn’s comedy linking ring routine is something I use all the time with kids. It’s magical, very funny and interactive. I highly recommend this booklet.
