My son loves coming home from school with new jokes to tell me. He even tries to make up his own when he feels creative, especially Knock Knock jokes. I always laugh, although sometimes I’m laughing at how silly they are more than how funny they are. Which is okay, because they are always cute.
When I first heard about the new children’s joke books I knew I would order them for him. He will love reading them. To know that they benefit children’s medical expenses is an extra bonus.
On October 2nd, World Smile Day, the Little Book – Big Laughs Riddle Book and Little Book – Big Laughs Knock Knock Book were released for purchase on Amazon. The books include over 500 riddles and 350 knock-knock jokes submitted by kids. The recommend age for reading is 4 to 12 but can even be enjoyed by parents.
“The inspiration behind these books is to bring smiles and laughter to children, whether in a hospital, in the car or just hanging out with friends and family,” said UHCCF President Matt Peterson. “Earlier this month, we awarded our 10,000th medical grant, and the proceeds from these books will help us further our mission of helping thousands’ more families in the years ahead.”
Here is one of the knock-knock jokes feature in the book that you can share with your little ones.

Normally I don’t go around knocking on doors, but I just had to meet you
In addition to the joke books, UHCCF publishes and sells the award-winning Oliver & Hope’s storybooks, along with other fun child toys and products; all available at Amazon. UHCCF recently added two more characters to the Oliver & Hope™ series of super-soft stuffed toys – Charlotte the fox and Hugo the dragon. Proceeds from the books and toys help fund UHCCF child medical grants.

Not only are the proceeds of the book sales an easy way for you to give back to your community, but the children’s books are filled with cute content that will encourage your kids to read. I know as a mom I am always looking for new books that my third grader will enjoy and want to practice his reading each night.
