The Big Book of Laugh-Out-Loud Jokes for Kids (A 3-in-1 Collection)

One of our Family Rules is to laugh.....a lot. And we take that 'rule' pretty seriously around here. So when I got this:


I was pretty stoked to have some all new material to laugh with the kids. We've checked out books from the library but they've all been just 'so-so' and some of the jokes have been questionable to telling to kids.

The first section has a Q&A jokes like:

Q: Where did the general put his armies?
A: In his sleevies!

or

Q: What do you call four bullfighters in quicksand?
A: Quatro-sinko!

The kids have loved them. We've read a couple of pages during dinner and all giggled, groaned and laughed until we cried. I haven't laughed like that in a while. We haven't even made our way though the first of the three sections of the book but it has been great. I've loved telling these jokes to the kids because so many remind me of the kind I used to find on Popsicle sticks.

Many of the jokes rely on a play on words, or a similar sounding word to make it funny.  That's been good to discuss with the kids because some we have to explain that there are different spellings of the words or different meanings with the same spelling.

The next two sections of the book have animal jokes and knock-knock jokes.

Even though they can get corny and we only do a few pages at a time, it's great having some new material around the house so the kids aren't always telling us the same tired jokes.

I received a copy of this book through the Revell Blogger Review Program, in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
