Never too young for Young Houdini

Here's one I missed when it was released back in November 2019. When Harry Houdini Was Young is written by Victoria Holder and Minwoo Song with illustrations by Jeongtaek Oh. Aimed at ages 3 and up, it tells the famous "Shake me I'm magic" story. Arthur Moses alerted me to this and believes this may be the youngest targeted Houdini book ever.

Harry Houdini, one of the most famous magician entertainers of all time spent his early years in poverty. The episode of the book takes place when young Houdini overheard his parents worrying about their rental payment. To raise money for the family rent, Houdini decided to beg money and perform magic shows. This heartwarming story shows the kindness, love and warm connection between family members who care for one another irrespective of circumstances.
