  1. Hi! Thanks for the list! I am always looking for funny books to keep my little ones giggling and interested. We will have to check some of these out at our public library. Our favorite funny picture book is Skippyjon Jones, read with a Hispanic accent at all the appropriate parts. My three and five year old love it!

  2. Love this list!! I love reading aloud to my kids too – it’s my favorite part of parenting. Even though they are now readers themselves, they love to listen and snuggle. Thanks for posting. Happy, happy Mother’s Day.

  3. Just put those books that we haven’t read yet on our holds at the library – thank you for the list!
    We ready a funny picture book tonight – Cloudy with a chance of meatballs 🙂 Sailer Moo is also a funny one 🙂

  4. You have got to check out “The Book With No Pictures”! It is absolutely the funniest book I have read with my kiddos. We were all three laughing hysterically. And then we got daddy to read it the next day. My kids still talk about it months later. I just bought it shut my sons birthday present (shhhh… Don’t tell him!)

  5. My favorite funny read-aloud book is Goldilocks and The Three Dinosaurs as retold by Mo Willems (same author as Don’t Let The Pigeon Drive The Bus).

    Thanks for the list of books! These will be among our first to read for our summer reading program. 🙂

    God Bless,

  6. As a retired elementary school teacher, I loved anything by David Weisner. He has won multiple Caldecott Awards for illustrations. My favorite was probably Tuesday…a story of flying frogs with very little text. I have used it to inspire children to tell a story with only pictures; to emphasize the importance of details; And to make predictions.

  7. My kids (ages 7 & 8) LOVED the picture book “It Could Always Be Worse” by Margot Zemach. it was a part of school curriculum one year, and they begged me to read it over and over all the time. It is quite ridiculous and funny.

    Also, I just have to add (as this is my first time commenting on your blog), that I love your blog. You have a real heart for discipleship of children and a gift for communicating it to your audience. We are doing your obedience study in our homeschool, and it has been a good exercise for my kids.

  8. If you like “The Day the Crayons Quit,” You’ll love “The Day the Crayons Came Home!” It’s a great book 🙂

  9. Great list! My first grade son literally laughed out loud after I read “Junie B. Jones Smells Something Fishy” aloud. This started his love of chapter books and Junie B. Jones.

  10. For a fun laugh-out-loud, read-out-loud chapter book, try Owls in the Family by Farley Mowat.
