What's so funny?

Today we launched Wee Hee Hee: A Collection of Pretty Funny Jokes & Pictures with our friends at Clarkson Potter. 

Why a joke book? It may or may not be scientifically proven that nothing brings people together like sharing a good giggle. And according to smarty-pants doctors and researchers, telling jokes is linked to higher intelligence, creativity, sociability, empathy, and self-esteem in kids. Consumer insights from Max, Leo and Finn revealed that it’s super-cool to tell jokes at lunch in 2nd grade.

In addition to 50 vibrantly illustrated jokes, inside are tips for just-right joke telling, a spot for recording people’s reactions, and an extra riddle for kids to illustrate.

Wee Hee Hee is now available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Powell's and (hopefully) your favorite bookseller.

Spotted: Go! on Oh Joy! and Cup of Jo

We spotted our newest adventure journal on two blogs this week. Oh Joy! put together a list of "Travel Must-Haves with Kids" which includes lots of useful tips, just in time for spring break. A Cup of Jo shares why Go! is "A Genius Kids' Book for Trips." Her son Toby said "I would like to fill it out in a plane or car or rental house. I would fill it out in all of them!” You can pre-order your own copy today on Amazon or buy it locally after March 27th.

What Wee Read

You’ve probably (hopefully?) seen this pick already. But if your kid doesn’t have it yet, please consider it mandatory reading. One of our all-time favorite books, Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls isn’t just for girls. (It’s in the regular bedtime rotation for our 7 year old boys.) Every kid (and adult) needs to know about the women beautifully profiled in this book, and in its equally engaging sequel. And for International Women's Day, it’s 30 percent off. Our advice? Stock up for gifts.
