“Because it might crack-up!”
Peas of cake!

Sure sources of fun for young readers a well as parents, siblings, and friends, this book perfect for long car rides and rainy days. You are guaranteed to giggles at all of these side-splitting jokes and knock-knock jokes!” [back cover]
These Belly Laugh books for kids remind me of the joke books I hoarded from the library when I was a kid. Simple, silly, and groan prone jokes kids will love. I could not read enough joke and limerick books as a kid. They were perfect companions on rainy days or when no one was around. The Belly Laugh books would have been my favorites. In addition to classic jokes and knock-knocks most of us have already laughed at, there are so many new, original jokes and knock-knocks. Each page has three jokes or knock-knocks, adding up to 350 in each book. In addition, the black line illustrations will often cause additional laughter.
In the top right corner of both Belly Laugh books is a small speaker. Push it and you will hear a goofy squeaky laugh (jokes) or a drawn-out ambitious laugh (knock-knocks). Kids will love these laughs, and the younger the child, the more they will want to push the red or purple laugh buttons. Parents, well, they might want to disable the laugh button after the first fifty or so times they hear the goofy laughs. Being in the top corner, and accessible through the cover, it is extremely easy to accidentally push the button. Trust me. Very easy.
Belly Laugh Jokes for Kids and Belly Laugh Knock-Knock Joke or Kids will entertain kids age 5 to 12, though those older will also get a kick out of some of these insanely humorous, kid-friendly (tame language), jokes. Reluctant readers will also enjoy the short pages and fun topics. After the younger children have been safely tucked into bed, (or simply not home), if around, you’ll probably hear older siblings and adults groaning and giggling, as they check out the answers to jokes they will eventually be asked to answer. Their brothers and sisters (or children), will be hooked on this silliness called Belly Laugh Jokes / Knock-Knock Jokes for Kids. No batteries required.
Listen to the laughter embedded in the books. I’m not a master video maker, actually this is my first, so . . . .
Parents.com has an interesting article about kids learning and how laughter is important to their learning: “Why Laughter Is a Sign of Learning.” You can read it here: http://bit.ly/LearningAndLaughter
