Youth Services Book Review for Animal Jokes

Youth Services Book Review for Animal Jokes

Rating: 1-5 (5 is an excellent or a Starred review) 5

Format: Board book

Genre:  Humor

What did you like about the book? Each set of pages has amusing jokes with equally funny illustrations to make kids laugh. The left page has the joke question, then you flip the book over for the answer on the next page. Something like this is a great way to entice reluctant readers as they really want to know the answer and will enjoy being the one to tell everyone else. My reluctant reader was all smiles when I flipped the book for him to read the answers.

Anything you didn’t like about it? Not at all! I was pleased that the book made my kids think and with the clever answers they came up with on their own.

To whom would you recommend this book? Children ages 2-8, especially silly kids, reluctant readers, or anyone needing a smile.

Who should buy this book? Elementary schools, public libraries, and day-cares

Where would you shelve it? jFiction Matheson, board books

Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? Yes!

Reviewer’s Name, Library (or school), City and State: Vicky Tandy, Athol Public Library, Athol, MA
