Winter Reading 2015 The Classroom Zone


Joke books are some of the most popular checkouts in the library. This is a fun collection of school jokes. They are grouped by topic - such as students, lunchtime, homework, and rules. Here are a couple of examples, "Why can't you whisper in school? It's not aloud."
or "Why didn't the flower go to school on its bike? The petalswere broken." Kids will be memorizing these to share them with each other and their families. Watch out - there may be milk spewing everywhere at lunchtime.

Jokes and riddles are a great way to get young readers interested in language and word play. You can't really get the humor without understanding what the words mean, recognizing homophones, and other conventions of language. I can imagine that teachers might have their students create class books with jokes and riddles of their own. A welcome edition for any school library. 

I read an e-book provided by the publisher through NetGalley.
