I like it when my kids say funny things without realizing they are being funny. P.S. I Hate It Here is a collection of unintentionally funny kid's letters from camp, collected by Diane Falanga. The letters are presented as scans of the originals, which is great, but I wish they book had included plain-text transcriptions too, because some of the letters are hard to read.

Here are a few sample letters from the book:
