The Complete Laugh-Out-Loud Jokes for Kids
Laughter is the best medicine has gone from adage to medical
knowledge. This simple act reduces stress, boosts health, and even
effects longevity. When you're with your kids in those inevitable
waiting situations--traffic jams, restaurants between ordering and
being served, doctors offices--their chuckles beat grumbling, whining,
and total immersion in electronics. Rob Elliot's The Complete Laugh-
Out-Loud Jokes for Kids is a compact carry along boredom buster.
Very few of the jokes are trite or predictable. Some are rather
"Q: Why did the cowboy ask his cattle so many questions?
A: He wanted to grill them."
"Q: What do you get when you cross a fish and a kitten?
A: A purr-anha."
"Q: What is the difference between a cat and a frog?
A: A cat has nine lives, but a frog croaks every day."
If your kids take turns asking the jokes they get reading practice.
If the restaurant has crayons (and you think ahead to bring paper)
they can illustrate favorites. Or they can make up their own and
submit them to LOLJokesForKids.com
Q: Why did the cow like this book so much?
A: She found it very amooosing.
I know. Don't quit my day job.
But imagine you're battling heavy traffic on an inclement day.
Which would sound better coming from the back seat: giggles or sibling
squabbles? Or how about hearing "Are we there YET?" for the twentieth
time? It's your call.
On a personal note, recently we had great fun in Universal Fellowship
choir. We were singing This Little Light Of Mine. We got to play easy
instruments. I had a tambourine. Choir director Molly told us to use
every way possible to show the congregation how HAPPY we were to be
singing that song. (In my case that meant dancing.) Later people were
saying, "Wow, the choir was GOOD!!!"
a great big shout out goes out to both my choir families.
