Author CAN do better
Reviewed in the United States on December 3, 2016
Bought several of these from the same author for my 2 boys 10 and 5 years old, whom read maybe better than I do sometimes and love LOVE jokes, knock knock jokes, riddles, and rhymes and yes some are even cute but I can't help but to feel I spent way too much money on these. The jokes are repeated some 10 times over and over in some cases and maybe thrice in 2 pages and that is were my frustration comes from.
I purchased the first editions then in hopes for more content bought the extra eds and the frustration led me to buy the one with all of them and the problem only got worse.
I do however appreciate the authors efforts for compiling all these jokes, and rhymes together but unfortunately the repetition of the same jokes over and over took the 5 star merit away. So for a couple good jokes 2 stars is too much.
Sorry for being too blunt but I really thought these would be jokes my witty, sometimes loud obnoxious, spirited and super curious boys would enjoy.
Now I'm wishing I could return them but if I do I'll break their hearts even when they sigh a lot asking me why are so many jokes repeated here.
Note to the author:
Please stop copying and pasting content when you've ran out of imagination. I'm sure the Internet is full of innocent jokes to be had and explored, innocent enough for kids whom have taken YOUR BOOKS to show and tell to show them off as their favorite books in the world.
A little more effort shows appreciation for the people engaging, buying, reading your books and ultimately sharing with loved ones the few good jokes.
I say this with the outmost love, admiration and respect.
Come on Rob! Show my boys better! I'm sure not many people will tell you their toddler at 4 years old calls YOU his favorite jokes book writer in the world. ( he couldn't say author, and he just turned 5 and reads like a spelling bee champion!)
