I read the book before giving it to my grandson. Now I can tell a joke even while I am dancing, and people actually laugh. At least I think that they are laughing at the joke and not the dancing. OMG

As an operator of child-care centers for After School Programs (kids 9-12) it is important to find books that children have FUN reading AND improves their future student academic success. The kids love this book & a huge hit! Thanks Theresa for a job well done!! Steve K
