Making a Habit of Joking

One thing that was missing in my house growing up was laughter.  My mom commented to me about this two years ago.  She commented on it because it is present in our home now.  My kids love jokes.  Last year, I made an advent calendar with pockets for the month of December.  I put a joke inside each pocket.  The kids take turns telling one at dinner each night.  They love this tradition!

I regularly keep my eye out for joke books to keep their minds tumbling.  A
new one coming out is titled The Big Book of Laugh Out-loud Jokes for Kids by Rob Elliot.  It's a 3 in 1 collection that combines his 3 previous books into 1 collection.  I think this is great!  #1 it saves money (the three books separately would cost about $12.50 and the one book costs $9 on Amazon.  #2 it saves space--one book is much easier to travel with than 3!

This book is full of jokes that all my kids (5, 8, and 10 years old) can enjoy together!  They'll sit at lunch and read a few at a time.  My middle daughter suggested that they each read one and then trade the book.  But, then she loved telling one so much, she wouldn't pass it on!  As a mom, I'm glad that it's full of wholesome jokes and not potty humor. 

In any case, if you're looking for a fun joke book to share with your kids--look this one up!  

Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this book for review from Revell Publishing.


  1. I loaded the kindle edition of this on my phone yesterday. The kids loved hearing the jokes throughout the day. I really appreciate the clean humor. Thanks!
