Danny Orleans has been teaching children how to perform magic at libraries, YMCAs, community centers, summer camps, after-school programs and park districts for over 40 years. In this 30-page e-book, he shares his teaching techniques for magicians who want to hold magic workshops for children. He combined what he learned as a magic teacher with his years of performing magic for children to serve as a consultant for Scholastic Publishing. The result was ten magic sets called "The Ultimate Magic Club."
