Forty years since its first printing, this famous collection based on Art Linkletter's long running radio and television series is now back into print to entertain a whole new generation with the wit, wisdom and candor of children. Kids Say The Darndest Things! is a laugh-filled gallery of hilarious pictures of the outside world as grasped by the eyes and ears of innocent (and often not-so-innocent!) children of all ages and backgrounds. Brightly illustrated with cartoons by Charles Schulz, and enhanced with an introduction by the legendary Walt Disney, Kids Say The Darndest Things! is a collaboration that will prove as popular with the readers of today as it was when it first burst upon the literary scene four decades ago. -- Midwest Book Review
Linkletter's classic from the 1950s, revised for contemporary readers [is] just as much fun as when previously published. -- Booklist, June 1, 1995 --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
Top Customer Reviews
In a popular segment on Linkletter's program House Party, he would interview small children, who often gave hilarious responses to (mostly) innocent questions. In this book, Linkletter presents some of his favorite moments from the show, and talks about some of the program's background, including how the children were selected.
Although it loses something in its transfer to print, nearly everything in this book ranges from the amusing to the hilarious. Only the last chapter, a collection of stories that didn't happen on the show (and mostly aren't true), disappoints. These are stories marketed as real things children did but actually written by adults trying (and failing) to be clever. On the whole, they come off as annoying. Stories like these still make the rounds on email, and they still aren't funny or credible.
On the whole, Kids Say the Darndest Things! is a funny, funny book.
My copy or rather my grandparents copy is very tattered and falling apart. I was so excited to be able to purchase a new copy. My children are grown now and I have shared this book with them. My husband and I just laugh over the anecdotes in this book. We quote them to each other quite often. We just reread the book out loud to each other and often we would have tears rolling down our faces from laughing so hard. It also would remind us of some of the funny things our own kids would say when they were growing up. Overall I would say this is just a fun book that will brighten your day. It is admittedly silly, but couldn't we all use a little laughter in our day?
