Last night I had the pleasure of sharing a couple of Jan Thomas titles with my sweet, little boy. The Doghouse was already one of our favorites in the regular rotation, so it was wonderful to share a different title by this author, Is Everyone Ready for Fun?. As soon as we finished with Is Everyone Ready for Fun?, there was a request to hear it again. The repetition that is included in Thomas’s books is ideal for beginning readers. The animals and silly pictures make these stories enjoyable for both parents and children!
Often my students ask me for “funny books” and these titles will be a perfect fit for some of them. I’d like to make a collective list of humorous books for kids, possibly with the help of Twitter. It would be great if everyone would add their favorite, wonderful, silly books for kids to the Twitter hashtag #hbfk (humorous books for kids) or post a comment here. After a few days or so, I’ll put together a list of recommended titles. Happy reading!
