Kids love funny things, but they don’t always like reading. If you can find them books that are funny, you can go a long way toward getting them interested in being better readers.
That will benefit them all throughout their lives, in their educational endeavors and in their enjoyment in hobbies. Here are some of the funniest books for kids that are available today.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid
Sarcasm and potty humor are easy to find in this book, which is a great choice for middle-school-aged kids and boys in particular. It’s sure to bring a smile to your son’s face, especially if he’s having a little trouble fitting in.
It’s a series, too, so there’s more to explore and your son (or daughter, of course) can go on all kinds of adventures with him. The illustrations really help to bring the book to life.
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
Wouldn’t you like to live in a town that had edible weather? Your kids will enjoy this book, especially if they’re still very young and they like to be read to.
It’s a great way to engage their interest and get them wanting to read for themselves, so they can discover more books. In order to keep them interested in books, be sure to read to them often, so they can see the value in learning to do it themselves.
Junie B. Jones
Also a series, there’s plenty to love in these books whether you’re a girl or a boy. They’re written for kindergarteners and first graders, and they’re sensitive to the concerns and needs of that age group while still being hilarious.
Even adults will find them funny. You can read them to your kids, or help them read them on their own.
This one is great if you’re into immature humor – and what kid isn’t? They like to giggle over things like gas, worms and head lice. If you’re squeamish about your children reading those kinds of things, the book might not be for you; however, it’s amusing, funny, and most kids will really love it.
It doesn’t take itself too seriously, which, in turn, helps your kids to do the same.
The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales
Any kid who likes fairy tales is going to love this book and all it represents. The tales have been changed and adjusted, of course, but that doesn’t mean you can’t recognize them for what they are – and how silly and fun they can be.
The fractured fairy tales are some of the best kind for kids, because they’re a little more irreverent and realistic than the old-fashioned tales parents grew up reading.
There are plenty of books out there for your kids to love and treasure throughout their younger years and as they grow into adults- they may even be interested in pursuing a profession that involves reading. They could pursue being a librarian, a young children’s english teacher, etc.
If you can find funny books they really like and get them reading, they’ll enjoy books and all they can offer for a lifetime.
