The Book I Bought for August: Lots of Jokes for Kids

ZJokesCoverSummer’s nearly gone.

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?)

What do you get when you cross a parrot and a centipede?
A walkie-talkie

What kind of light did Noah install on the ark?

Knock, knock.
Who’s there?
A little old lady.
A little old lady who?
I didn’t know you could yodel.

Six slippery snails slowly slid seaward.

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 tall when I’m young and short when I’m old. What am I?
A candle

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 JanuaryFebruary, March,  April , May, June, and July at those links and find a roundup of the books I bought for 2014 here.
