Scamapalooza 54: Hocus Pocus Practice Focus with Amy Kimlat

My kid just performed their first solo magic show.

In front of 300 of their peers, they correctly predicted a randomly selected TV show, vanished a bottle of coke and tricked the principal into opening a can of spring snakes.

Classic comedy!

But why do so many kids, particularly girls, give up on magic?

Amy Kimlat is a children’s author and former kid magician whose new picture book Hocus Pocus Practice Focus inspires kids to stick with their passions, no matter how hard it gets.

I talked to Amy about performing magic as a kid, girls in magic, and being a first-time author. A FREE COPY OF THE BOOK:
