      How could you not love this book? The kid's are adorable! A few samples to make you want to pick this up: "One little lad remarked that they had a brand new Daddy around the house. When I asked if he knew how his mother had met him, he told us a real whizzer: 'It all happened one morning when the doorbell rang while Mommy was taking her bath.' He stopped to gulp. And at this point I could have inserted a ten minute commercial for any client under the sun and we wouldn't have lost a viewer. 'My l [...]

      I think I am gonna carry this book around with me all the time. Whenever life is handing you lemons and making your day gloomy, you can rely on a kido to help you out with perspectives and simplify your convoluted adult thoughts, cause they'll give it to you straight.

      My parents had this book when I was a kid and I read it back then. I found it kind of amusing, even as a kid.

    • Carmen says:

      This was not as entertaining as I thought it would be. The illustrations by Schultz are wonderful, but I still couldn't finish the book. Children do say wonderful, hilarious things all the time, but Linkletter's format is distracting and takes away from the flow.

    • Sue Mosher says:

      It's obvious that this is an old book (although a new edition) from some of the things the kids say (and from the forward by Bill Cosby), but I still found it very enjoyable.

    • Jeff Dawson says:

      Kids Say the Darndest ThingsWhat an excellent collection of the thoughts from babes. I enjoyed how many boys referenced how they would enjoy having Marilyn Monroe or Jane Mansfield as their mother. If you don’t know who they are, take the time and do a little research. In my day, it was Raquel Welch! When it came to a father figure, Dwight David Eisenhower was a unanimous choice. For me I’d have to say it was John Wayne. While I enjoyed many of the comments Art was able to pry out of the you [...]

      Cute book! I began reading it on a bus trip to New York City because I knew 2 of my young cousins would be along, and if they got bored I supposed I could read excerpts from it to entertain them. They didn't care about the book, but my uncle noticed it, having read it in its original publication back in his youth.We both remember the television show, though my memory is of Bill Cosby's revivial and not of Art Linkletter's original. Having spent so much time with the aforementioned cousins over t [...]

      Kids Say the Darndest Things! by Art Linkletter (Prentice Hall 1957)(817). I loved this book as a kid. Art Linkletter hosted a popular daytime variety and talk show in the 1950's and 1960's called "House Party"; he would often assemble a panel of young children and ask them questions; the always surprising and often hilarious answers have been crafted into this book. For instance, Linkletter confesses in the book that one of his favorite questions to ask the kids on the panel was, "What did your [...]

      Luucccuuu banget. Tambah lucu karena ini nyata. Kids say the Darndest Things! adalah acara talkshow di Amrik sono (gak tau sekarang masih nggak), pembawa acaranya si pengaran ini (Art Linkletter). Tiap episode ada 4 anak (di bawah 12 tahun) yang diwawancarai dengan pertanyaan yang biasa aja sebenarnya, tapi jawabannya itu lhooo jujur, polos, lucu, dan imajinatif! Keren deh. Sayang di Indonesia nggak ada acara serupa (mungkin yang paling mirip adalah kuis celoteh anak yang dibawakan Dewi Hughes d [...]

      When I was little I read all kinds of things I'd never look at today, except perhaps in a bathroom. One was Reader's Digest, a commonplace in homes. Another was this book derived from radio and television interviews with kids under the age of eleven. What I'd like to be able to recapture about this reading is how it felt to read what kids my own age were saying as wrapped up in print by adults. Sadly, because I would have preferred to be more exceptional than I was, I read it as given, just as I [...]

      Some great utterances by the kids make this collection almost worth it. One can see such brutal honesty and profound wisdom in the voices of these youngsters that you will come to appreciate the delicateness of children's souls everywhere, and greatly fear the fragility of the innocent bubble they reside in. You will question how you came to stop being one - and how, if only you had the power, you could have preserved that same purity of mind and heart which everyone somehow grows out of.

    • Mell says:

      I love this collection of hysterical things said by kids, as collected by the TV host. Inherited this book when it was donated to the church library but considered too ripped up for the shelf. I used to volunteer to tidy up the neglected room. At that time I had no idea who Linkletter was or that the book was based on his popular TV hosting gig.

    • Joy Gerbode says:

      While there were certainly a lot of cute stories in this book regarding the cute things children say, I think most all of them would have been much funnier if I could have seen the children (on the old show) rather than just reading it on the page. While many of the responses were humorous, I'm sure they were MUCH funnier when you could see faces and see the children.

    • Lance says:

      My parents had this on the bookshelf in the living room. When I read it, I was about the same age as the kids being quoted. I thought it was the funniest book in the world back then. A delightful read!

    • Kaethe says:

      when asked leading questions. Whenever you're bored just find a kid and ask them about any serious weighty topic of the day. For even more fun, invite them to speculate on topical subjects: how does the Easter bunny do that?

    • KennyO says:

      Art Linkletter had an occasional segment on his TV showw where he interviewed several kids, one by one. The title says it all and things haven't changed awfully much in the world of kids. If you find this book, read it! It'll brighten your day.

    • Mary Lou says:

      A delightful humorous book of children responses to questions.Quotes:Spanking, if necessary, has to be "on the spot"As long as a child is at battle to see what he can get away with he is unhappy and miserable. Real authority, well defined limits gives him security.

    • Lynnea says:

      Pretty funny. But this book is so old (1957) that much of it was dated beyond my understanding. Still it was quick and enjoyable with a bit of Art's autobiography thrown in.

    • Richard says:

      Uneven, but parts are incredibly funny.

    • Teresa says:

      Wonderful! Hilariously entertaining.

    • Jackie Harrison-jewell says:

      They really do!

    • Michell Karnes says:

      A very fun book full of those charming and sweet things children say. You can tell that the book was written in the late fifties but still the innocence of children is timeless.

    • Chris says:

      I love this book! It is so funny and reveals the innocence and honesty of children so well.

    • Peter Daniel Berg says:

      funny to see parents embarrassed by their children. art style good. one read only.

    • Cassandra Sells bushman says:

      One of my favorites!

    • Tammra says:

      My mom had this book on the book shelf when I was younger. I loved to read it and laugh. I found a used copy and bought it just for the memory.

    • StacieHaden says:

      I read this when l was a teenager. We watched the show regularly. This is a classic, of sorts.

    • P.W. says:

      Great thrift store find somewhat dated yet also timeless in the presentation of children.

    • Vicki Boyd says:

      Non-fiction. Oldie but goodie. Found at yard sale for a dollar.

    • Laurette says:

      I remember reading this as a child. Very funny book!
