Why do bicycles fall over? Because they’re two tired.
Knock knock. Who’s there? Bashful. Bashful who? I can’t tell you. I’m so embarrassed.
Fun! Children from all over the country have contributed knock-knock jokes and riddles for two new joke books that are available starting October 2, which just happens to be World Smile Day.
The books – Little Book — Big Laughs Riddle Book and Little Book — Big Laughs Knock-Knock Book — include more than 350 knock-knock jokes and 500 riddles submitted by kids, for kids. The books are ideal for children ages 4-12, but can be enjoyed by people of all ages.
So what’s so special about these books?
They help fund child medical grants for families in need. Proceeds from the sales of the books help fund UHCCF grants that help families pay for their children’s medical expenses that are not covered (completely or in part) by their health insurance. Since 2007, more than 10,000 medical grants — totaling more than $29 million! — have been awarded by UHCCF.
“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 Little Book — Big Laughs books are available at Amazon for $5.99 each.
In addition to the joke books, UHCCF publishes and sells the award-winning Oliver & Hope storybooks, along with other fun child toys and products. (They’re all available at Amazon.) UHCCF recently added two more characters to the Oliver & Hope™ series of super-soft stuffed toys – Charlotte the fox and Hugo the dragon. Proceeds from the books and toys also help fund UHCCF child medical grants.
