This book is guaranteed to entertain children for hours with chapters like "He Stands at the Door and Knock Knocks," "Matches Made in Heaven," and "Are You Smarter Than King Solomon?"

 My Thoughts
4 STARS!!!

I have never been much of a joke teller but my children became interested in joke books when they each turned about 8. I’ve heard the same old jokes told over and over and obligingly laughed at each one. But I can tell you that Bible Trivia, Jokes, and Fun Facts for Kids has some funny stuff in it! Youngsters will find the jokes amusing and perhaps even sidesplitting. I admit my husband and I guffawed over a few of them; even our 19-year-old son cracked a smile a time or two. I’m hoping my grandsons are going to get many hours of hilarity out of this book. They are always excited to share a new joke with us and sometimes get so excited when trying to tell the joke that they can hardly speak for their own laughter bubbling over. I’m looking forward to laughing at these again and again! 

Learning is a definite plus when it comes to the facts and trivia! I was surprised how much of it I didn’t know. Several things even stumped my husband who is pretty good at Bible trivia. Granted, some of it is kind of obscure but it was still fun to put our old noggins to the test.  

I highly recommend Bible Trivia, Jokes, and Fun Facts for Kids to the entire family! You’ll share hours of fun and laughter and learn together.

  1. Hi Anne! This sounds like a keeper! My grands are not quite at the joke-telling stage, but they're getting there. Is there an age recommendation for this book?
    Any time you can educate about the bible and have fun, well, that's a winning combination.
    Have a wonderful week!

  2. This sounds like an excellent book to have to share with teens! I love a good clean joke! Laughter is excellent medicine for the soul! Speaking of laughter, I don't know if you've ever been to Victor Moubarak's site, but he has to be one of the funniest Christian bloggers I have met in "blogland". His website is:

    Hope you are having a wonderful day!


I am so delighted that you've taken time to come by and comment. Blessings for a joy-filled day!
