My kids love to laugh and to make me laugh. A day doesn’t go by that they aren’t doing something goofy or telling a knock-knock joke. They also love to learn and read. Take those two combinations and you have the perfect holiday gifts for kids from Uncle John’s who brought you the Bathroom Readers which I fondly remember buying my husband for a gift about ten years ago!
First launched in 2002, the Uncle John’s For Kids Only series is designed for young trivia fans, infomaniacs and reluctant readers. The latest installment in this series is TOTALLY QUACKED (ages 8+) — 288 pages packed with strange science, weird news, obscure history, odd sports, and the interesting origins of everyday things. Special to this edition: amazing animal quack-ups, history’s biggest quacks, ducky weather, fine feathered friends, quacky fashion, and things that are “Just Ducky” (which could mean really good or…soaking wet). It’s also perfectly sized to make an excellent stocking stuffer:).
And now, two MUST-HAVES for keeping hungry young diners from gnawing off the table legs at those extra long holiday meals…feed their brains with Uncle John’s Riddle Me Timbers! and Magic Cupcake Placemats (ages 6+). Each cleverly themed tear-off sheet in these 36-page placemat pads is filled with brain-building activities: a “Ship Shape” puzzler, a “Fairy Pie” maze, brainteasers, jokes, and weird facts, noodle-while-you-doodle activities and even Polly-Wanna-Doku and Wand-Doku (Sudoku with pictures!).
