Hadith on Kids: The Prophet plays with children, tell jokes

Anas ibn Malik reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, was the best of people in character. I had a brother who was called Abu ‘Umayr. When the Prophet would come and see him, he said, “What has the little sparrow done?” And he would play with him.
