David Ginn and Samuel Patrick Smith are THE EXPERTS at kids shows. Google them because the bird won't allow any one else to be mentioned.

Steve Taylor has a great manuscript called Making Your Birthday Biz Go Ballistic. It's quite informative.
Still, Ginn and Smith are the best source (I'm more of a Smith fan, btw).

Laxmaster,
David Ginn has an excellant book out that takes you thru the entire process and also has marketing tips etc. It's called Clown magic. You don't have to be a Clown obviously, but it has great ideas for magicians to do a kids show.
Best of luck,
Sluggo
