LC made new friends, she was enthusiastically chatting up 4 1/2 year old and 6 year old sisters before the show started. LC was thrilled when she was selected to help Mario with a magic trick, since she loves performing in front of people (and she truly believes magic is real). Here are frame captures of the magical moment that was recorded on video:
Afterwards, LC told me she "made magic turning seven card big" and she looked so proud. Other than teaching magic, Mario also reinforces math concepts, responsibility and manners, but the kids don't realize that...it's just a grand show (for parents, as well) and they can't get enough of it.
