The Worst Jokes I Know

Children love jokes! If you are looking for a last-minute Christmas gift idea for the child — or child at heart — in your home try The Worst Jokes I Know (and I Know A Lot) by B. Patrick Lincoln. This sweetly illustrated title is a collection of 101+ Funny Bone Ticklers for Jokesters of All Ages that answers the lighthearted questions in life.

This updated version includes color illustrations and dozens of new jokes.

Children like to feel the joke coming, in this way; they love the anticipation of a laugh, and they will begin to dimple, often, at your first unconscious suggestion of humor. If it is lacking, they are sometimes afraid to follow their own instincts. Especially when you are facing an audience of grown people and children together, you will find that the latter are very hesitant about initiating their own expression of humor. It is more difficult to make them forget their surroundings then, and more desirable to give them a happy lead. Often at the funniest point you will see some small listener in an agony of endeavor to cloak the mirth which he—poor mite—fears to be indecorous. Let him see that it is “the thing” to laugh, and that everybody is going to.

Stories to Tell Children by Sara Cone Bryant

As we explain in the foreword, 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.
