Abdo Kids Jokes – School Library Journal, Series Made Simple
Some puns are cute and some are absolute groaners, but all the jokes in these books rely on everyday language and homonyms rather than Amelia Bedelia-style literal interpretations of figures of speech. Jokes make our brains work in order to reconcile competing meanings, pronunciations, or spellings: “How do we know the ocean is friendly? It waves!” (Punny). Happy, diverse kids welcome readers from the cover; while inside, clean design is dominated by stock photos and colorful cartoon drawings. Knock-Knock Jokes is of particular note: clean jokes for kids tend to repeat from book to book, so any book with a few new ones is a find. VERDICT Great looking and plainspoken joke books for early readers.
