Concocted from the actual zany and oddly wise things that kids under the age of 12 have said, this rollicking entertainment covers all the bases: “What do you want to be when you grow up?” “How did your mommy and daddy fall in love?” “Do you have any pets … brothers … sisters … secret ambitions?” “What would you say to the president?” It is filled with the innocent wisdom that comes out of the “mouths of babes” and reminds us to look at the world with a kid’s view. It is based on the hilarious best-selling book Kids Say the Darndest Things by Art Linkletter, inspired by the TV show House Party which ran 26 years, hosted by Mr. Linkletter. “Kids Say the Darndest Things” is produced with special arrangements with the Dramatic Publishing Co., Woodstock, Illinois.
