Reviews - What do customers think about The Little Big Book of Laughter?
Funny, but not really for kids ... Mar 1, 2007
I bought this book based on my experience with other books in this series, particularly Big Book for Moms and Big Book for Grandmothers. This book is full of cute and funny sayings, BUUUUUT, there are some pretty racy passages that were not suitable for my 10 year old. Beware of giving this to a child if you aren't ready to explain a lot of sex jokes.
