Picture Books to Make You Laugh Out Loud!

by Miriam Downey 31. December 2013 07:42

Start the New Year off with a laugh.

I have been thinking about this posting during the holidays as I observed the things that made my grandchildren laugh. I watched my oldest grandchild making my youngest granddaughter laugh until she cried over his silly faces. I have heard children laughing at the dinner table over goofy jokes. At the same time, I observed my granddaughters watching tween shows on television where the laugh track was going wild but as the watchers, they weren't even cracking a smile. Why is that? Perhaps observing humor is different than participating in humor.

All of the books below are guaranteed to bring out a chuckle from both the reader and the listener. They are sophisticated enough that parents will love them as much as the child. They can all be found at the library or bookstore. They are guaranteed laughs.

I have to add that my special favorites are the books of David Shannon, Mark Teague, Lane Smith, James Marshall, Mo Willems and Dav Pilkey. You can't go wrong with any of their books.
