I love the concept of this book and it's been a huge hit with my 7 and 8-year-old kids. I was a big fan until recently, when we'd used up about half of the book. I don't pull the jokes out in order, I just flip through to find a joke they'll 'get.' That's the problem now -- I still have half the book left and it's getting harder and harder to find jokes easily understandable to my first and third grader.

Some examples:
What do cats do when they join a monastery? They take a "meow" of silence.
What does a cavewoman wear when she gets chilly? A neander-shawl.
Why did the shirt go to the doctor? It was feeling 'blousy.'
What do germs use to get rid of bad breath? Micro-scope.

While these are not complicated jokes, per se, my first grader is not familiar with the term 'vow of silence', probably has never used the terms blouse and shawl, and probably hasn't heard the word Neanderthal. My third grader is at a much higher reading level, but even she is not familiar enough with monastic practices to get the first one, and while I know she knows the term shawl, I'm much less sure that anyone has used the term blouse to her. Both of them use mouthwash, but we've never used the brand scope and we use it with them to prevent cavities and I've never mentioned it being for bad breath -- that joke would leave them completely nonplussed.

There are also jokes which depend upon pop-culture references like Will Smith or Scuby Doo. We read all the time at our house and talk about a wide variety of subjects, but I am sure my children are not familiar with either these icons.

You might object that these jokes can be explained to them and be a learning experience. This is true.

these jokes are stupid and funny, which is perfect. I also put them into my wife's lunch bag. We all like these jokes. Maybe I like 'em the most. I wish I didn''t already know myself and I'd put a joke in my own lunchbag without knowing. There is also space on the back of each joke sheet to write a personalized note for the kids like "good luck on your test!" and "I hope you remembered to wear underpants. Love, Dad"

I do not put these in their lunches but I leave them for them in the morning. It is a great way to start communication during breakfast time. I even write a note for my seventeen year old and he looks forward to them as well. The jokes can be a little cheesy but it is not the joke they look forward to. Reading what I wrote is what they like. Sometimes kids do not want to talk to you but this is a way to communicate without feeling judged. My kids have even started writing me morning notes as well.

my 2nd grader loves these. I pack one in her lunch every day and when she has hot lunch she still likes to bring one along. I eat lunch with her class twice a week and they all look forward to hearing the joke for the day:) I pack the joke along with a fun fact (did you know there is more chickens in the world then humans) and a short note of encouragement. Lunch lines might be a great icebreaker for a shy child.

I've been putting notes I my daughter's lunch bags for years. This is the best set of kid jokes!! Sometimes you get a set of lunch notes and you have to page through to find a good one. This book of jokes is so chock full of good ones, you have to try to figure out which one you like the best out of many. I wish there was a second edition available!

Cute book of jokes! My daughter loves getting them in her lunch everyday. You just rip one out, fold in half, and drop it in! Some jokes are REALLY corny, but others are funny. Great for younger kids or older ones who don't mind the corniness :)

This has saved lunchtime for my 7 y/o son. He had been having a hard time having conversation and connecting with friends at the lunch table. Now, the children are always eager to hear his joke-of-the-day and he looks forward to lunch!

I'm so happy with these! The jokes are super corny and fun for elementary aged kids. I sort through and pick which one goes in my 2nd grader's lunch or my 6th grader's. Some are above the 2nd grader's understanding without an adult there to explain, and some are too cheesy for my "cool" middle schooler (but I think he secretly loves all of them!)
You tear out the joke and fold it in half making like it a little greeting card with the answer to the riddle on the inside. Folded it is smaller than the size of a business card. You have a spot inside to write a note. I will be buying a newer version when this one runs out!
