6 Funny Books For You and Your Kids

These books are some of our favorites. They are fun to read for both of us and make us giggle. I think that's the best part of any good book! So count with us as I share our SIX favorite funny books! (And, the photos are affiliate links if you would like to buy the book and help me earn money!)

I knew from the first time we read this that it would be a favorite. She giggled and nearly snorted at the thought of what underwear each animal would wear.
 "There's a new zoo in town,and here's what I've heard THE UNDERPANTS ZOO is completely absurd."

This one has an inviting and fun rhythm to it. Oh, and the end was the best part. Here is the gist; 
Pete the Cat is wearing his favorite shirt—the one with the four totally groovy buttons. But when one falls off, does Pete cry? Goodness, no! He just keeps on singing his song!

She grew a huge squash and then didn't know what to do with it. It kept growing and growing! Don't worry, she figures it out! 
"She slapped it and scolded it, pinched it and kicked it and then she took hold of its stem...
and she picked it."

Crispin the dragon is not a typical dragon but he is quite funny! 
Everybody knows your typical dragon breathes fire. But when Crispin tries to breathe fire on his seventh birthday, fire doesn't come out—only whipped cream! Each time Crispin tries to breathe fire, he ends up with Band-Aids, marshmallows, teddy bears? Crispin wonders if he’ll ever find his inner fire. But when a family emergency breaks out, it takes a little dragon with not-so-typical abilities to save the day. With wry humor and whimsical illustrations, Not Your Typical Dragon is the perfect story for any child who can't help feeling a little bit different.

A sleepover is planned at Rabbits BIG house, only it's not as big as they thought! The illustrations are silly.
Douglas is excited to go to Rabbit's sleepover. On his way he runs into Little Sheep and invites him along too. But Douglas brings along more guests than he realizes! With too many animals and not enough space, how will anyone ever get to sleep? Douglas finds the perfect solution in this hilarious third book in the Douglas series.

This book reminds me of the rhyme “This Is the House That Jack Built,” 
“And on that granny / there is a child / a dreaming child / on a snoring granny / on a cozy bed / in a napping house, / where everyone is sleeping.” Included in the napping house is a dozing dog, a snoozing cat, a slumbering mouse, and a wakeful flea who ends up toppling the whole sleep heap with one chomp! 
I hope you check one or all of these silly and fun books out with your child. Let me know what you think! What books would you add to this list?
