One day they look at you when you tell them a joke and they have no idea what you’re talking about. The next day they laugh out loud as they “get it”. And, if your jokes tend to run to the pun, it’s not long before they start to roll their eyes when you relate a “punny” joke to them. These book recommendations should get kids of all ages laughing.
