Recommended funny picture books
I so often tell students in upper elementary through high school that I don't think you ever outgrow picture books...so I wanted to list a couple of great newer funny picture books that I think anyone (who shares my sense of humor!) would enjoy:
The hilariously illustrated Too Many Pears by Jackie French
My Father the Dog by Elizabeth Bluemle which highlights the amazing similarities between the dog and the father in this household.
A Birthday for Cow by Jan Thomas, with great comic-like illustrations, and a duck who is a little obsessed with turnips
Fifteen Animals (a board book) by one of the authors that ALWAYS entertains both Teresa and I: Sandra Boynton. If you've never read a Sandra Boynton book...you're missing out! Two of my other favorites is Moo Baa, La, La, La and What's Wrong Little Pookie?
And for all those fellow Scaredy Squirrel fans out there, a new book has just joined the group of stories about this very parnoid rodent: Scaredy Squirrel at Night.
