Looking for a book of family-friendly jokes this summer? The Worst Jokes I Know (and I Know A Lot) by B. Patrick Lincoln is a collection of “101 Plus Funny Bone Ticklers for Jokesters of All Ages” that answers the lighthearted questions in life, such as:
Why did all the shapes do business with the equilateral rectangle?
Why was the ground delighted with the earthquake?
And why did the chicken really cross the road?
This heavily illustrated paperback, now in color, 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.
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.
Great way to share a laugh!
