Jokes + Doodles = No More Boredom {A Laugh Out Loud Pocket Doodles for Boys Book Review}

**We received a copy of this book in exchange for review. All thoughts are our own.

Knock Knock.
Who's there.
Funnel.
Funnel Who?
The Funnel start when I come in!


Let's be honest... what kid doeesn't love a good knock knock joke!? 

I know mine certainly does! But it's not just knock knock jokes he loves, but jokes in general. He loves making people happy, making them laugh. It's no wonder that he's been a big fan ever since he discovered the Laugh Out Loud Jokes for Kids books several months ago!



These books were full of fun jokes that are perfect for kids- clean, goofy and simple to remember and understand. He has loved making us laugh as he learns a brand new joke. So, when I heard about the newest book in this collection, I knew we had to get our hands on it. After all, this was more than just an ordinary joke book:

Q: What's the worst thing to leave home without?
A: This book!

Stuck in the car on a long trip? Bored out of your mind in a waiting room? Have a few minutes before bedtime? Then you have enough time to let your imagination run wild!

Laugh-Out-Loud Pocket Doodles for Boys lets you

· tell jokes that will have people laughing out loud
· complete hilarious doodles
· entertain everyone around you!

More than one million copies of the Laugh-Out-Loud joke books have been sold. Grab your pens, pencils, crayons, or markers and see what all the fuss is about!

He lives in Michigan with his wife, their three children, four cats, and a dog.

As I said, this is NOT your ordinary joke book. As much as my son loves telling jokes, he loves to draw even more! He's constantly drawing little sketches of his favorite characters and logos, or creating his very own comic books. But there are times when he gets in that drawing mood but doesn't quite know where to begin. Haven't all of us creative people been there? I certainly have when it comes to writing!



For the doodler, this book is the perfect solution. With each joke is a fun doodling prompt to go right along with it! They can still think out of the box and get as creative as they wish with it, but it gives them a starting point to go on... and can be a great way to expand their typical doodles too! Not only that, but its the perfect size for tossing into a suitcase, overnight bag or even backpack for on the go entertainment. From rainy days to travel to those random 'I'm bored' moments, this book is becoming a go-to!

The book may be called Laugh Out Loud Pocket Doodles for Boys, but honestly it is perfectly suitable for girls as well. Still, there is a more girly version as well with jokes and doodles aimed more toward little girls than boys!

Sounds pretty awesome right? But don't just take MY word as a grown up on this. This is a book for kids, so I asked my kid a few questions about it:

Me: What's so great about Laugh Out Loud Pocket Doodles?
Shaun: It's very, very funny. I like that I can draw in it.

Me: What's your favorite thing to doodle?
Shaun: Farts.



Me: Do you think other kids should have this book too?
Shaun: Yep. Because it's funny.



He's a boy of few words, but he truly loves this book! Your little boy can pick up his own copy today!

  6. I totally agree, Boys love to tell jokes. Plus, they are gross. They love anything that involves bodily noises.
