I could probably read aloud to kids for a living… Oh wait, I do! Ah, the joys of being a homeschool mom!
Seriously though, reading aloud to my kids is absolutely the best part of the day. Even the older children will still cuddle nearby on the couch to hear a beloved picture book and the little guys are always captivated by the missionary biographies that we enjoy.
But I must admit that some of my favorite reads are those that make us laugh. Not just a little chuckle every now and then, either. We love funny children’s books that bring on those irresistible belly-laughs. There is something so healing about laughing together. In fact, it knits us together and creates that bond we desire so much.
Knowing how much you all desire the same family unity, I figured I would share some of our favorite read-alouds that will make you laugh. You’ll find something for every age group and gender. And don’t worry, parents are not excluded from sheer enjoyment either!
15 Laugh-Out-Loud Funny Children’s Books
I have broken the read-alouds up into two categories: chapter books and picture books. Remember, kids of all ages should enjoy both! Little ones learn a great deal from listening to a long passage without pictures. Likewise, older children learn about sentence structure, audience appeal, comprehension and so much more when they are given the chance to focus on shorter texts in addition to those longer chapter books. So go ahead and enjoy both without hesitation!
