" Not that great. Not funny. Boring. Don't read. " said.

" My third graders enjoyed them even though I had to explain the meaning behind most of them (especially my ELL). " said.

"Here's a fun little book just perfect for these fall months before Thanksgiving and Christmas. My 7 year old has enjoyed them, but has to have half of them explained,because of his Asperger's Syndrome he has some difficulty understanding idiomatic expressions and puns and other such play on words. Some of the jokes just used terminology (like "fowl" or "ear (of corn)", he'd not really heard before. It's a level 3 and on the back they don't really tell you much about what that's supposed to mean. I would think any AVERAGE 3RD grader could read this with ease, a more eager reader could read most of it in even 1st grade. Most kids though grades 3 thru 5 will like the jokes, which aren't too bad and each have very silly illustrations (all quite colorful). Examples:
What happened when Tom Turkey stepped up to the plate? (baseball picture of turkey getting ready to hit a the ball) Answer: He hit a "fowl" ball.

What did the turkey say when the pilgrim passed the potatoes? (picture of the first thanksgiving where the turkey, sitting on a large platter, looks quite happy)
Answer: No thanks, I'm stuffed.

I plan on using these on the days of Thanksgiving just to add to the general merriment. My son loves to have job (Head garbage taker-outer and joke teller these days) and takes these little duties very seriously.

" Cute silly book with puns and jokes. A quick , fun read for Thanksgiving " said.

" I enjoy reading and sharing these jokes every year at Thanksgiving. This year I shared the book with a friend that teaches 4th grade. When she returned the book she told me how much all of her students enjoyed this book. She spread out the jokes throughout the three days before thanksgiving. " said.
