Tito the Magician by Guido van Genechten

Manu, the magician at Circus Rondo, is fantastic. With a little magic powder, a wand, and a few words, he can pull amazing things out of his top hat. Tito, the little clown, would love to do that kind of magic. But when he tries with his own little brown hat, the magic doesn't work at all. Maybe it's because he's uncertain and shy. What would happen if Tito were to ask Manu to show him how the trick really works? An endearing picture book about magic and daring, for children aged 3 years and up.


Being a magician is no easy trick. It hinges on one of the human qualities that's most difficult to achieve...Genuine self-confidence, humility, and a sense of wonder: bravo, Tito. -- Kirkus Reviews The colorful illustrations are wonderful, and the story has a good message to believe in yourself. -- Sarah Fetterman, Librarian A lovely story which teaches children to have faith and confidence in themselves. Tito just needed faith in himself and someone who believed in him. -- Kirst Aust, Educator A cute book with a couple of messages, one to be confident and try, the second to ask for help when you need it. - Carla Johnson Hicks, Educator PRAISE FOR BOOKS BY GUIDO VAN GENECHTEN: A quirky counting book that's mostly distinguished by van Genechten's entertaining crew of strong men, acrobats, and jugglers. -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY on CIRCUS 123 Even the very young will understand that there were none to begin with, a notion that may banish at least some nighttime anxiety--and provide bedtime giggles as well. - Publishers Weekly on NO GHOST UNDER MY BED Told mostly through dialogue between parent and child, this picture book starring two charming penguins dispels bedtime fears by replacing them with belief in a father's love. - School Library Journal on NO GHOST UNDER MY BED A universal story about nighttime fears of wild things and the loving reassurance that soothes them. - Booklist on NO GHOST UNDER MY BED The abundance of sounds and repetition of key phrases makes it great for reading aloud. - Kirkus Reviews on NO GHOST UNDER MY BED NEW YORK STATE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION: Every Hero Has a Story Summer Reading List - SUPER LADYBUG TO THE RESCUE Hooverville OH Summer Reading List - SUPER LADYBUG TO THE RESCUE A Perfect Picture Book - Charlotte (NC) Parent on NO GHOST UNDER MY BED A little ghost unapologetically makes the most of being different...Different never looked so appealing. - Kirkus Reviews on GILBERT THE GHOST Children will relate to the need for encouragement when braving the world of potential playmates... for libraries wanting winter friendship books to add to the typical lovey-dovey Valentine's Day fare. --School Library Journal on BECAUSE YOU ARE MY FRIEND In the dark of night, each bird plays its unique tune, and then they collaborate...Simple and sweet. - Kirkus Reviews on THE BIG WOODS ORCHESTRA Little ones ages 4 and older will relate to this charming tale of Little Snowman Stan, who is told he's not allowed to move, run and play; to basically stand still and be seen, not heard. Across the cool, illustrated pages, Stan finds his freedom at last. A grand adventure! - Nashville Parent on LITTLE SNOWMAN STAN
