This book has many jokes, but also has several pages of workbook exercises on humor. How to make up a joke, how to deliver a punch line, etc. . . It's not a passive reader, the child must interact with the book--and a pen. If you just want a book full of jokes, pick a different one. If you have an independent reader that wants to develop his or her joke telling skills as well as picking up a few new jokes, then this would be a good choice for you.

Format: Paperback
"Everything Kids' Joke Book" targets children 9 to 12. The first part of the book is jokes of various sorts. The second part has advice on how to tell jokes and make up jokes and be funny. My 8 year old / 2nd grade daughter loves this book and will willingly read it by herself or aloud. This is exactly what she needs to improve her reading skills, and I've found nothing else she is half as willing to read. Some of the jokes use words she doesn't know; a 12 year old would understand all of the jokes and also find the book suitable. Example jokes: "what is a kitten's favorite color? Purr-ple"; "What is a ghost's favorite color? Boo"; "If astronauts are so smart, why do they count backward?"; "What kind of dog does Dracula like? A Bloodhound." Occasionally throughout, there are cute little exercises to do, where the solution is the answer to a riddle, like a very simple cross-word puzzle. My daughter greatly enjoys filling these out. All told, this books is well worth the buying.

I got this for my 7 year old niece who lives in another state. She loves it. in fact the next time that i saw her she told me a bunch of jokes from the book. also i think that she has room to grow with the book.

it has a lot of fun activities, and it helps exercise their brains with all of the brain puzzles.

One of my kids has this book and loves it. I read it and couldn't help but laughing at some of the jokes. This would make the perfect gift for a child 6-12 years old.

This book has a lot of jokes but some of them are just not at all funny. My 6 1/2 year old loves jokes and some of these are hard for him to "get". I wouldn't really recommend it. Also it is not a joke book he can read on his own and he reads at about a 2nd grade level.

My 8 year old daughter wanted to learn some jokes so we bought this book for her. She really likes it. It has some jokes that she can understand at her age now and some that she will get when she is a little older which is nice so she doesn't out grow it so fast.

Jokes are ok (really, most are not that funny- but very simple). Ther is some other stuff to keep a reader busy My 10 year old likes it, but I don't see him pouring through it. Rather, he picks it up when there's nothing else to read.

This is a cute book but I need to do a better job of reviewing books before I buy them. It is hard for my grandson and some of his friends to get a laugh out of the jokes that are a little advanced for them. They are ages 7 through 8.
