The Funny Zone

As April 1st comes closer, all you kids--and some adults, too--may be thinking about some of your favorite jokes and riddles you like to share with your friends and family.  To help you find new knock-knock jokes, elephant jokes, shaggy dog stories, riddles, and other funny material, please browse our "The Funny Zone" display of books.  You do not want to be caught short when someone asks you, "How can you tell if an elephant has been in your refrigerator?"  Happy Reading!  

The Digital Media Catalog

Digital MediaThere used to be a large box near the top center of our home page that said “Digital Media Catalog.”  You used to click that box to get to our ebooks and downloadable audio.  Then “they” redesigned the web page.  Fear not; it’s still easy to get there.  You just click this icon now.  It’s on the right, about 2½” down.
