This book offers a great selection filled with classics such as "How much wood would a woodchuck chuck" and "Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers" and "A fly and a flea in a flue" along with silly lesser known twisters. The tongue twisters are presented on inviting, colorful pages with bold easy to read type. The pages are divided into subject areas such as animals, names, places and holidays. Each page includes vivid illustrations. This book will bring a smile to anyone's face. 2004, A Child's World, Ages 5 to 10.
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.
