Silly School Riddles (Dial Easy to Read: Level 3)
Title: Silly School Riddles (Dial Easy to Read: Level 3)
Author: Lisa Eisenberg
A compilation of school-themed riddles features such humorous questions and answers as “When you’re having trouble with math, what can you always count on for help? Your fingers” and “Why is 6 afraid of 7? Because seven ate nine.”
This latest in Dial?s series of riddle books is full of stuff kids just can?t learn in school. No textbook has the answers to these jokes; no teacher can offer assistance. Kids are strongly encouraged to share their work with others, and the more talking, giggling, and answering out of turn, the better. One tip: If desperate for a hint, illustrations by Elwood H. Smith make for a hilarious cheat sheet.
