Knock, Knock, Who's There...
Last week was a crazy, busy week at my house. I started canning, Emily started school, I mowed my mom's lawn, and I had lots of baking to do for the weekend farmer's market. So when the weekend rolled around, I realized I hadn't read any new books, made any new crafts, or done anything else worthy of a Kid's Korner post.
It's moments like these that I get excited all over again about my new tablet and my ability to download books. I searched Amazon for something of interest and found some fun looking joke books for kids. Emily loves kids jokes especially knock, knock jokes, so I thought I would try a few out on her.
First I read some jokes from the book Knock Knock Jokes For Kids by Lizzy Burbank. Overall they were pretty corny and some were just not that funny, but there were a few that made Emily laugh.
"Knock, Knock. Who's there? Barry. Barry Who? Barry cold out here, let me in." or
"Knock, Knock. Who's there? Carrie. Carrie Who? Carrie my luggage in for me please."
There are sections of jokes based on people's names, animals, vegetable, and so forth, which is kind of interesting, but overall I would only give this book a middle of the road rating or a three star. It just didn't register that high on the funny meter despite it's claim of being hilarious.
The second book I looked at was Jokes For Kids Double Pack. These jokes were much funnier. I particularly liked the pirate joke.
"Why are pirates called pirates? Because they Arrrrr!"
And the cow joke.
"What do you get when you cross a cow with a trampoline? A milkshake."
And the cheese joke.
"How do you make a cheese puff? Chase it around the house."
I kept reading and the jokes continued to be fun, so I would say this is a great deal for a double dose of fun. Both of these books are only available as Kindle books, but Amazon offers an app to read them even if you don't have a Kindle.
So ends an other episode of Kids Korner, with me, children's author Aileen Stewart. Join me next week for another exciting episode, same crazy time, same crazy channel. And feel free to drop by my personal website, Fun With Aileen, any day of the week for even more on reading, writing, and my very own middle grade book Fern Valley!
