5 Funny Sports Jokes for Kids


If you’ve ever seen the joy on a child’s face after hearing a joke, you know the importance jokes have in connecting with children.  Jokes for kids are also a positive, powerful tool that can break the ice in a difficult social situation, lighten a mood, or improve self-esteem after a bad day.  At Reading Kingdom we like to have fun as we help spread literacy across the globe.
