About the Author
Roger Price and LeonardStern created Mad Libs in the 1950s and the series has been a favorite among kids of all ages ever since. Although Roger Price passed away in 1990, Leonard Stern keeps the tradition alive by writing new Mad Libs all the time.
Roger Price and Leonard Stern are both well known for their comedywriting. In the 1950s Roger Price created and developed cartoons called Droodles, which were turned into a television show. Before that Price worked with Bob Hope on a newspaper humor column, and he even appeared on Broadway in Tickets, Please!
Leonard Stern has an equally colorful and varied history. Before co-founding Price Stern Sloan with Roger Price (Sloan came later), Stern was a successful television writer. In addition to his creative involvement with over twenty television series and over ten motion pictures, Stern worked with Jackie Gleason in New York writing the Honeymooners. He also wrote for the Phil Silvers Show, The Steve Allen Show, and wrote and produced the original Get Smart television series. Recently, Stern published A Martian Wouldn't Say That, which compiled weird and wacky memos written by people in the entertainment industry.Currently, Stern serves as a senior vice president of Price Stern Sloan, where he still writes those hilarious Mad Libs.

(Not to be confused with kids who attend the Derek Zoolander School For Kids Who Can't Read Good)
❖ I won't explain what Mad Libs are in general, assuming that you haven't lived under a rock for the last half a century. But these Mad Libs are great for little kids that don't know how to read yet. Instead of having the type of word needed under the blank lines like (noun), (adverb), (verb) etc...it does the whole thing with symbols. So it will have a star where it needs nouns, an arrow where is needs verbs, etc. Then there is a list above the MadLib of nouns under a star icon and verbs under an arrow icon so the kid can just randomly pick words without even reading them. (Obviously they will need someone who can read to read the MadLib back)
❖ Even if the kid can't read the words, they are working with the words. And that's healthy development of reading skills. You can even have them copy the words from the provided lists into the blank spots. Again, even if they don't know what the words are, they can copy the letters. This helps with writing skills. And since they are categorized, the MadLib will work properly even by random selection. (By that I mean they will be silly and fun)
❖ As for the enjoyment factor...it's Mad Libs. Come on! Who can't have fun with Mad Libs?
