The Big Book of Magic Michalski
In our opinion still the best magic book for children and young people. Here you will learn effects with cards, coins, ropes, up to stage illusions. If you don't have it at home, you can make it out of wood and fabric with a bit of skill.
Michael Michalski also dedicates an entire chapter to the history of magic, which is presented excellently with all the pictures.
