Read It and Eat Book Club: Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's Magic

Read It and Eat is our monthly Monday night book club for 'tweens.  Learn more about Read It and Eat here

What We Read:
Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's Magic by Betty MacDonald

What We Did:
While the kids ate, we discussed the book.  Then we learned three simple magic tricks:
The magic tricks!  The kids were psyched to learn the tricks, practice them, and take all of the supplies home to share them with their families. 

Not So Hot:
The book got mediocre reviews.  Since it was published in 1949, some of the material is dated.  The Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle books were some of my favorites as a child, so I tried not to take personal offense. 

Sanity Savers:
Each person got a gallon-sized ZipLoc bag to put their magic trick supplies in and take home.  The only things they didn't take home were the crayons, juggling scarves, and pennies.  If I were a little braver, I would have also brought permanent markers so the kids could write their names on the bags before we started learning the tricks!
