Children's LiteratureAlways a favorite of the elementary school crowd, knock-knock jokes are inevitable. This collection offers many of the classics (Knock knock. Who' s there? Boo. Boo who? Please don't cry it's just a joke!) as well as some lesser-known jokes of the genre. A few of the jokes are a bit of a stretch but children don't seem to mind because it's all funny to them. The jokes are arranged alphabetically, and presented on color filled pages in large bold type. There are enough child friendly jokes in this collection to provide hours of entertainment and have nary a joke repeated more than twice (in a day!). Illustrations are vividly done. 2004, The Child's World, Ages 5 to 10.
School Library Journal - School Library JournalGr 3-4-These books include some traditional jokes along with a lot of cleverly thought-out new ones. Any dinosaur lover will get a kick out of the play on words in the first title: "What did the dinosaur call her shirt-making business? Try Sarah's Tops." In Knock-Knock, the material is arranged alphabetically, with four or more jokes for each letter. "Knock, Knock. Who's there? Quack. Quack who? Quack another bad joke and I'm leaving!" But Tongue Twisters should be read out loud. Selections include "A big black bug bit a big black bear, made the big black bear bleed blood" and "Does double bubble gum double bubble?" With some practice, children can impress their friends with their tongue-twisting skills. All three books have colorful cartoons that clarify the jokes. These titles are not only funny, but they also reinforce language skills painlessly.-Cynde Suite, Bartow County Library System, Adairsville, GA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
