Excerpt of Ten Dollar Words For Kids: This is the first cover and one of the illustrations and text that will be featured in my first book. Illustrations by Jay E. Fife:
Sleight of hand, fingers quick,
perform engaging parlor tricks.
Hocus-pocus, presto, change-o!
Abracadabra, where’d that coin go?!
Houdini was tops, boggled the mind,
many seek to be his kind.
It disappears, no explanation,
magic trick: Prestidigitation.
