KARL WAGNER, veteran of over 10,000 school shows across the USA, has written the first textbook on performing safety message magic. Not only does Karl offer you dozens of kid-show routines that are both FUN and FUNNY, but he teaches you how to inject safety messages (or ANY messages) into many standard tricks and routines. You’ll enjoy reading Karl’s patter and stories, plus his philosophy and real life examples. In these pages you’ll find enough material to create several complete shows; but if you use only one or two routines, you’ll be a winner with parents and teachers.
Furthermore, “Safety Magic for Children” teaches you how to WORK with CROWDS of children from a man who has “been there.” Karl’s love of children, his energy and his positive approach will all serve to inspire you in your own kid-show work.
