Magic of Giving, The by Marc Dunston, Wally Amos

When Marc decides to enter the school talent contest, he is at first discouraged because, unlike all the other kids, he can't come up with a talent. But during a trip to the school library, he picks out a book about Harry Houdini and decides that his talent will be magic. He practices all week for the big contest, and when he wins the prize, he buys a Thanksgiving feast for his friend, whose father recently lost his job. This uplifting picture book for young readers encourages kids to develop their abilities and use their talents to help not only themselves but others.
