A new school year’s beginning—a happy but often challenging time for families.
Sometimes you just need to laugh.
And the grand-boys are coming! Many days in September we’ll have all four running around our house. The eight-year-old especially enjoys jokes—hearing them, reading them, telling them.
So I had to pick up this bright new collection of jokes from Zonderkidz!
The cover says 250 jokes, but the title page says 500. I did a little counting, and I think 500 is the right number.
You’ll find Q&A jokes, knock-knock jokes, and tongue twisters here, and funny word play—lots and lots of word play (which is actually educational, right?)

A little old lady who?

There’s an entire chapter full of animal jokes, plus a bonus section that includes riddles, with the answers upside down at the bottom of the page.

I’m looking forward to having fun with grandson #1 and this little book!
Each month I buy a book to support retailers and other authors and to recommend to my readers. You can find this year’s picks for January, February, March, April , May, June, and July at those links and find a roundup of the books I bought for 2014 here.
