The Cub Scout Magic Book. Lots of books in the bookstore. Magic that the professionals use cost a little to much for kids. It's best if you teach them simple easy to do stuff. If they want more, then they will seek out a magic store or knock on your door!

It can be purchased at any scout store.

What you may really want is James Munton's How to Teach a Magic Birthday Class. It's simple stuff they will eat up, and done in an entertaining way. It's good for any class not just birthdays.

I haven't seen the cub scout book but I'll second Den's recommendation of James Munton's How to Teach a Magic Birthday Class. Check it out at Loomis Magic (one of the best and most reputable dealers, in my opinion).

There is a gentleman that is involved in teaching magic to children who belongs to the SAM. Society of American Magicians. He has a book available and you can contact him at af72ma@verizon.net and his name is Al. He sent me all sorts of information. This has been a little over a year ago so I hope the info is still current. He seemed to be very helpfull.

I wanted to post to this thread when it originally started but couldn't find my copy of this book. While looking for something else I ran into it tonight. It's "The Complete Guide to Teaching Magic" by Alfred M. Albers. There was a good review in one of the magic magazines sometime in 1999 and I bought a copy. It's been a while since I read it and I haven't put it into practice but I remember thinking the advice was good at the time. A quick search found a site that is selling it ($25).

Greetings, fellow magi; Al Albers, here. Thanks for the kind words about my book, I appreciate it. For the record, the first edition of the book is sold out (I only printed 125 copies). However, in 2002, I updated it and put out a second edition (again only 125 copies), of which I have about 20 copies left. If anyone is interested in the book, I'll be glad to send you a free, no obligation, informational flyer, via email. Thanks.

I forgot to mention, in my post, that I changed ISP's last year; my new email address is: af72ma@verizon.net.
