Just OK: Lots of Knock-Knock Jokes for Kids, a review

Because I know my kids like jokes, I thought it would be fun to review Lots of Knock-Knock Jokes for Kids. Some of the jokes were cute. Some, typical of knock-knock jokes, were kind of silly and pointless.  However, I have to keep in mind that they ARE knock-knock jokes. Several of them were ones my kids hadn't heard, which was a nice bonus. This book was truly a lifesaver when we found ourselves waiting somewhere for any length of time, as it kept my kids occupied and entertained.

I really liked how the jokes were organized in the book.  There were topical sections for jokes about names, places, holidays, animals, and objects. Additionally, there was a bonus "jokes and riddles" section. My kids seemed to really enjoy this section after they had had their fill of knock-knock jokes!

 Although the jokes were appropriate, there was one that just really didn't need to be in the book and kind of changed my entire opinion. The joke is in the "objects" section on page 74 and says the following:  "Knock Knock. Who's There?  I eat mop. I eat mop who? You do what??"  Because I don't advocate "bathroom" humor, I was highly disappointed to see such a  joke in this book.

I would give this book a 3 out of 5 stars.  It was "okay" and could definitely provide some laughter for your kids.  However, it wasn't the best joke book I have ever seen.
