You’re Joking: Become Expert Joke-Teller is a delightful and great masterpiece addressed to kids and written by Tom E. Moffatt, an excellent humorist but better writer.
My son is always telling me jokes and he loves reading them to all the family in our Sunday meetings, so I thought this would be perfect for him as it gave him confidence to practice his reading skills as well as entertain a crowd! The vocabulary throughout this book is very appropriate and basic. I also liked that there are various categories so as not to get bored.
I dare to say that the book is really interesting even for adults, I felt more than absorbed when I read it and I must admit that some of the jokes are pretty funny!
It contains 144 pages that are well organized and they are simple enough to the understanding of our little children.
I am really happy with this purchase and definitely I would recommend it for early readers or any who just love a good joke and making others laugh!
