What better way to celebrate World Smile Day with your family than with children’s joke books? I was asked to share the news in a sponsored blog post about two new jokes books released by The UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation (UHCCF). The joke books are collections of knock-knock jokes and riddles for kids, by kids.
The jokes not only provide smiles and laughter, but also help fund child medical grants for families in need. Proceeds from the sales of the books will help fund UHCCF grants that help families pay for children’s medical expenses not covered, or not fully covered, by a commercial health insurance plan.
Since 2007, UHCCF has funded more than 10,000 medical grants totaling more than $29 million. Would you like to help support this wonderful cause? Visit Amazon.com to purchase the joke books for $5.99 each. Little Book – Big Laughs Riddle book contains 500+ riddles! Little Book – Big Laughs Knock-Knock Book has 350+ knock-knock jokes. Kids are going to love these joke books! I know my kids love to tell riddles and jokes.
These brand-new joke books are especially geared towards kids ages 4-12 years old, but can be enjoyed by all ages. Enjoy a few silly samples from the books:
Why do bicycles fall over? Because they are two tired.
What can you see in the water that doesn’t get wet? Your reflection.
Knock Knock. Who’s there? Bashful Norma Lee. Bashful Norma Lee who? I can’t tell you, I’m so embarrassed Norma Lee I don’t go around knocking on doors, but I just had to meet you.
“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.”

The first Little Book-Big Laughs joke book was released April Fools’ Day 2014 and was a Mom’s Choice Gold Award recipient for juvenile books. The success of the first book propelled the idea to create two additional books for a joke book series.
