The Worst Jokes I Know

Looking for a book of family-friendly jokes for your youngster this Christmas? The Worst Jokes I Know (and I Know A Lot) by B. Patrick Lincoln is a collection of “101 Funny Bone Ticklers for Jokesters of All Ages” that answers the lighthearted questions in life, such as:

Why is it inadvisable to read the contents of this book to an egg?

Why was the ground delighted with the earthquake?

And why did the chicken really cross the road?

This heavily illustrated (in color on some Kindle devices) book provides a new twist on some old classic jokes, while including a few originals — all told in a bit of a different, yet engaging, way.

We were happy to provide the foreword:

Children love jokes. They love to laugh. They love it when they “get it.”

Reading and sharing jokes helps children:

  • Develop a sense of humor.
  • Develop their logic skills.
  • Expand their vocabulary.
  • Look at things from various perspectives.
  • Understand subtlety.
  • Lighten up and not take things too seriously.

Good, clean jokes that fit a variety of young children can sometimes be hard to find. In this book the author includes jokes that will appeal on some level to jokesters of all ages.

This is not a joke book you can just hand to your child to let him go off and enjoy by himself. These jokes are meant to be shared.

The Worst Jokes I Know is available in paperback and eBook formats.

Great way to share a laugh!
