“What falls in winter but never gets hurt? Snow!” Who would have guessed? Well, perhaps the Peeps guessed. They do have a sense of humor. Punny Jokes To Tell Your Peeps! (Book 9) by Lisa Ayotte shows that by twisting around a few words and phonetically changing their sounds you have the power to create an amazingly funny punchline. Jokes and puns don’t have to be complicated to be a lot of fun, and, yes, funny, too. The simpler the better as it’s then easier to remember. Nothing worse than a jokester who forgets the punchline. I know I’ve don’t that many a time. Haven’t you? And, what about some Peeps illustrations to help visualize the joke or the pun? Visualizing always improves memory skills. Did you know you can learn from jokes and puns? You can improve your reading skills and vocabulary; you can improve your memory skills, and you can strengthen your critical thinking. So, let’s get those peeps joking and punning around with you.

Lisa Ayotte’s book, Punny Jokes To Tell Your Peeps!, is the latest in her Punny Jokes series. This author has an amazing sense of humor and just when you think she’s exhausted her repertoire of jokes and puns, along comes another collection. The jokes and puns are simple, often no more than plays on vocabulary. These are all family-friendly jokes and puns, clean and full of subtle humor. I love the illustrations: the Peeps have outdone themselves again! At the end of the book, the author encourages young readers (and those humorously young at heart) to create their jokes and puns, and she provides suggestions on how to create one’s own silly punny peeps. Her final words are prophetic and so true: “YOU can change the world, one peep at a time, by being a good friend and showing kindness to others every day!!!” Loved it!

Punny Jokes To Tell Your Peeps! by Lisa Ayotte is an amusing and interactive book that would do extremely well with young children for several reasons. Not only is this bound to have the kids laughing themselves silly but jokes like these engage children’s ability to grasp more complex language skills. It helps to add vocabulary in a fun way while also giving children the opportunity to practice memorizing the jokes. I think Ayotte did well in creating this book and it shows that she intended it to benefit not only children but adults as well. This work could serve as a useful resource to teachers or parents of young children and could even be used as part of the training material for foreign language learning. The author is to be commended and I hope that she gains the recognition she deserves.

Some of the jokes in the book genuinely made me laugh, even as a somewhat self-confessed serious adult. I highly recommend parents introduce this book to their kids.

Punny Jokes to Tell Your Peeps! (Book 9) is another installment of the children's series by Lisa Ayotte which contains a collection of 32 jokes with accompanying photographs. Following a repetitive, predictable pattern, each joke is written in two lines, as a question and answer or pun, that children will love to share aloud or ask as riddles. Each joke is accompanied by a colorful photograph that relates to the joke. The photographs display unique scenes of “peeps,” crafted pom-pom characters with googly eyes, surrounded by miniature furniture, animal figurines, and other toy-sized props. Not only will kids enjoy the jokes they read, but they will enjoy making up their own “peeps” to go along with their collection.

Punny Jokes to Tell your Peeps! (Book 9) is quick to read if you're just looking at the jokes, but in this case, the pictures add an entirely new dimension to the act of storytelling. The amount of detail that went into every setting shows a lot of commitment to the craft, and Lisa Ayotte is an artist in a medium that I had never even considered before now. I might have found myself way more interested in the pictures than the words. However, as someone who works with children who have communication disorders, I love having such a collection together in one place. Using puns and jokes such as these is great for teaching kids about phonemic awareness as well as multiple-meaning words. I can easily imagine myself incorporating this series into my therapy sessions and talking about silly scenes.
