When you want to encourage your kid to get into reading, using humor may be the best course of action. After all, what’s better than sending your kid into a giggle fit over a great story? There are some recent children’s books that will make your kid laugh out loud — and probably cause you to crack up as well. Seriously, when did these writers get so funny?
Whether your kid likes bright picture books, silly rhymes, or even parodies of classic kid’s lit, these reads are certain to become new favorites. (And if you’re going to read the same book a hundred times anyway, it might as well be funny, right?) By getting silly together, you and your child can strengthen your own bond. After all, few things are funnier than a mom who can get into storytime and make these characters her own. Unleashing your inner comedian can be fun for everyone, so when you’re reading them aloud, ridiculous voices are most definitely encouraged.
Chances are, reading these funny books together will help kickstart a lifelong love of reading for your kid. And you’ll make some great memories together in the meantime. Unwind with these funny books and no one will find story time boring again.
