So you have no excuse for not knowing a good one to tell! The majority of them play off people's names, but many of them also use other nouns: nacho cheese, waffle, Kenya, Alpaca… Have fun laughing! "Knock knock." "Who's there?" "Kanga." "Kanga who?" "No, kangaroo." 121 pgs., pb. –Chad

    Meeting resistance with handwriting practice? Here are 40 reproducible practice pages with built in motivation – your student is learning a joke they can then share with others! Isn’t that clever? There is a short review at the beginning on how to form the letters, but this is more for practice than initial instruction. Each practice page starts with 3 words the student copies a few times. These words will be used in the joke written below. They then carefully copy the joke or riddle and the answer. For every joke they copy, there is even a bonus joke to share! It’s so cute. The jokes are silly and goofy, just what kids like! Why do flamingos lift one leg when they stand? If they lifted both legs, they would fall down! The 3 practice words for this one are flamingos, stand and would. Once your student has done all of their writing practice, you can cut the jokes off the bottom part of the page and staple them to make a little joke and riddles book: there is a cover sheet in the back to color. It can take only 5-10 minutes per day to get in some cursive practice that your child won’t dread. They may even ask to do more than a page a day! (Modern style) 48 pp, pb. ~ Sara

    Written in a similar style to the other Don't Know Much About books, this journey through the 50 states presents several questions and answers about each state as it is covered. Each page features one state (except for Texas, which of course needs two), with a small outline map of the state and other basic facts about the state, including the state bird and flower near the top of the page. Then several questions about the state are posed, some about more basic information about the state, and some involving more trivia-like information, such as "How many trees does it take to make a gallon of maple syrup?" for Vermont,"What is a keystone, anyway?" for Pennsylvania, or "Why were Nebraska's first settlers called 'sodbusters'?" for Nebraska. Other small interesting facts and state jokes are included as well. Also, a complete map of the U.S. is featured inside the front and back covers. Not a comprehensive look at each state, but an entertaining and informative read.

    When this book says “Extreme”, it isn’t joking! Each dot-to-dot puzzle involves over 1,200 dots which reveal a wonderful feature of the ancient or modern world when completed. The book includes such marvels as the Golden Gate Bridge, Roman Colosseum, Great Sphinx and Pyramid of Egypt, Mount Everest, and much more. You don’t have to wait to complete it before you know what it is—riddles at the beginning of each dot-to-dot will reveal the answer. The primary feature of these puzzles is the incredible drawing accuracy that 1,200 dots give the completed image. With a bit of time (and patience!), each puzzle reveals a beautiful scene.

    Zac the puppet learns a lot from his next-door neighbor Mrs. Walker. Every encounter in the backyard brings a new opportunity to explore concepts and to review math facts. This educational series consists of 12 fifteen-minute episodes on two videos. Episodes cover place value to 100, money, time and calendars, metric measurement, customary measurement, geometry, fractions, two-digit addition and subtraction, and renaming readiness. Despite some corny jokes, Mrs. Walker's explanations are clear and easy to understand. In fact, her demonstration on how to tell time is one of the best that I've ever seen. ~ Anh

    Everyone knows Santa Claus as the jolly old fellow who delivers presents on Christmas Eve. But who was he and where did he come from? This novel presents an answer. Nikolas by name, he was a lonely, scrawny twig of a boy, meting out a meager existence in Finland’s frozen tundra with his loving father. But disaster soon strikes—his father embarks on a lengthy journey of disreputable origin, and young Nikolas is taken under the wing of his cruel Aunt Carlotta. He runs away from home and seeks his father with the help of an equally dismal mouse and a loyal reindeer named Blitzen. The cold, lonely plains of Finland plague Nikolas almost as much as the numerous bad guys standing in his way. Reminiscent of “classic” children’s fairy tales, this children’s novel is excellent in its own right. With a fun, exciting plot, clever jokes, and a vast array of colorful characters, this “origin of Santa” story makes for great Christmas reading! 234 pages, hc.

      My children loved to get lost in a good encyclopedia. Maybe that sounds odd today, but I am still a firm believer in having accessible, quality books available for children to read when curiosity peaks. Lavishly illustrated and divided into two parts, Physical and Life Science, this resource is jam packed with information, fun facts, hands-on activities and intermingled science related jokes. The introductory section explains what science is, how scientists work and the scientific theory before describing the difference between physical and life science and going deeper into respective areas. Evolutionary content.

      Physical science is separated into four sections: matter, forces and machines, energy, and electronics. Subtopics are presented in a 2-page spread that includes photographs and colorful graphics, clearly explained textual information, historical or unique fun facts, activities or jokes. A sampling of topics includes chemistry basics, organic chemistry, noble gases, gravity, friction, radio waves, satellites, nuclear power, sound waves and more.

      Life Science is separated into four sections: the universe, life on earth, human body and planet earth. Subtopics are presented similarly to the physical science section. A sampling of topics includes the big bang, solar system, classification of living things, microbes, reptiles, ancient medicine, genes, reproduction and growth, volcanoes, earthquakes, the earth’s age, rocks and minerals, biomes conservationism, and more. Includes websites, books and film recommendations, a glossary, and index. An excellent resource for your home or school library. 303 pgs, hc. ~ Deanne
