Kids Still Say the Darndest Things! by Art Linkletter (010KBK)

Kids Still Say the Darndest Things!, by Art Linkletter and illustrated by Charles M. Schulz. Published by Bernard Geis Associates First Printing 1961. It is hardcover, about 8 ½ inches by 5 ½ inches and contains 192 pages. It’s about some of the crazy, cute and just plain weird things kids say. It is in good condition, and I only say this because the Dust jacket folded in the corner and slightly ripped on the bottom of the back. The book itself is in great condition, 

It is a funny book about weird things kids say about life and general things they don’t really know about.
