With their signature style of “Knock knock, who’s there?”, the options are endless on how the gag can go. And that’s what ultimately makes them so appealing, according to Rob Elliott, the creator of the Laugh-Out-Loud series of joke books and author of Knock Knock Jokes for Kids. “Knock-knock jokes can be fun for kids of all ages,” says Elliott. “Even a preschooler can have fun with the silliness of play-on-word jokes as their use of language is developing.” And because they’re interactive (instead of waiting for a punch line), it opens up the opportunity to create memorable moments with your child. Adds Elliott: “This is a great way to build a young person's confidence as a person and as a reader without even knowing they're learning.”
