A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales. The teacher said it
was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human because even
though it was a very large mammal its throat was very small. The little
girl stated that Jonah was swallowed by a whale. Irritated, the teacher
reiterated that a whale could not swallow a human; it was physically
impossible. The little girl said, "When I get to heaven I will ask
Jonah". The teacher asked, "What if Jonah went to hell?" The little girl
replied, "Then you ask him".
........................................................................ A
Kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children while they
drew. She would occasionally walk around to see each child's work. As she
got to one little girl who was working diligently, she asked what the
drawing was? The girl replied, "I'm drawing God." The teacher paused and
said,  "But no one knows what God looks like." Without looking up from
her drawing, the girl replied, " They will in a minute."
........................................................................ A
Sunday school teacher was discussing the Ten Commandments with her five and
six year olds. After explaining the commandment to "honor" thy Father and
thy Mother," she asked, "is there a commandment that teaches us how to
treat our brothers and sisters?" One little boy (the oldest of a family)
answered, "Thou shall not kill."
...................................................................... An
honest seven-year-old admitted calmly to her parents that Billy Brown had
kissed her after class.  "How did that happen?" gasped her mother. "It
wasn't easy," admitted the young lady, "but three girls helped me catch
him."
........................................................................
One day a little girl was sitting and watching her mother do the dishes at
the kitchen sink. She suddenly noticed that her mother has several strands
of white hair sticking out in contrast on her brunette head. She looked
at her mother and inquisitively asked, "Why are some of  your hairs
white, Mom?" Her mother replied, "Well, every time that you do something
wrong and make me cry or unhappy, one of my hairs turns white." The little
girl thought about this revelation for while and then  said, Momma, how
come ALL of grandma's hairs are white?"
........................................................................ A
three-year-old went with his dad to see a litter of kittens. On returning
home, he breathlessly informed his mother that there were two boy kittens
and two girl kittens. "How did you know?" his mother asked. Daddy picked
them up and looked underneath," he replied. "I think it's printed on the
bottom."
........................................................................
The children had all been photographed, and the teacher was trying to
persuade them each to buy a copy of the group picture. "Just think how
nice it will be to look at it when you are all grownup and say, 'There's
Jennifer; she's a lawyer,' or 'That's Michael. He's a doctor.'" A small
voice at the back of the room rang out, "And there's the teacher. She's
dead."
........................................................................ A
teacher was giving a lesson on the circulation of the blood.  Trying to
make the matter clearer, she said, "Now, class, if I stood on my head, the
blood, as you know, would run into it, and I would turn red in the face."
Yes," the class said. "Then why is it that while I am standing upright in
the ordinary position the blood doesn't run into my feet?" A little fellow
shouted, "Cause your feet ain't empty."
