Some fun Halloween facts

Did you know that trick-or-treating was stopped at one point in time? Because of a sugar shortage during World War II, children were not allowed to trick-or-treat. People were asked to cut back on the amount of sugar they used, so many people switched to using honey to sweeten their food.

Did you know that carving jack-o-lanterns began a few hundred years ago? People in Ireland carved potatoes and turnips, and when they immigrated to the United States they brought that skill with them. When they arrived in America, they found that pumpkins could be carved just as easily.

These facts (and more!) can be found in Kooky Halloween Jokes to Tickle Your Funny Bone by Linda Bozzo. This title is part of the Funnier Bone Jokes series. All six titles in the series are available in library, paperback, and eBook versions.

Look for them at your local bookstore, or you can order them through your preferred vendor,, Barnes and Noble, and Amazon.

Happy Halloween!

Age-appropriate joke books for upper elementary school readers

Geared toward the language arts curriculum and part of Enslow's spring 2013 list, Funnier Bone Jokes is a series of 48 page titles, with each title corresponding to a different holiday. All six titles in this series are available in library and paperback editions, as well as a multi-user eBook and as a library/eBook combo.

Each title defines the words joke, limerick, and tongue twister, and includes fun facts geared toward that particular title's subject. Readers also get helpful hints for designing their own cards. Other holidays featured in this series are April Fool's Day, Thanksgiving, Valentine's Day, Christmas, and Halloween. This series continues in the same fun way that Enslow's Funny Bone Jokes were written. That series was published in 2011.

These titles are available through your preferred vendor, your local independent bookstore, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble.

Age-Appropriate Jokes for April Fool's Day

Last night, we gave a paperback copy of Enslow's new April Fool's Day Jokes to Tickle Your Funny Bone to a young boy. He shared a few of the gags with the assembled siblings, friends, and stray adults. (Think of it as a very informal focus group.) Everyone had a good time, which was the point.

Here are a couple of samples from this new Enslow book:
Q: Why did the fool bring his computer to the dentist?
A:  It had a megabyte.

Q: What do ducks like to watch?
A: Duckumentaries.

Q: How did the fool find the flea bite on her body?
A: She started from scratch.

These and many other age-appropriate April Fool's Day jokes are available in author Amelia LaRoche's 48-page book.The title, part of Enslow's "Funnier Bone Jokes" series, is available in paperback for $7.95 from Enslow Publishers. It may also be ordered from your preferred vendor, Barnes and Noble, or Amazon. A library-bound edition of April Fool's Day Jokes to Tickle Your Funny Bone is available directly from Enslow for $15.95; that price represents a 25% school/library discount from Enslow's list price. An e-book edition is also available; call Enslow Publishers for more information about this and other e-book titles.
