my little bookcase - day 2

A book that makes your children laugh.

The first that comes to mind for my littles is Amelia Bedelia.

The second is a math reader. It is particularly humorous. Rabbit and Hare Divide an Apple.

Rabbit and Hare can't figure out how to divide the apple when Mr. Raccoon comes along and offers to bite it in half for them.

He eats it all up.

He does this repeatedly. But Rabbit and Hare eventually catch on and solve the problem themselves. We find this reader so funny!

The third book my kids laugh at is An Extraordinary Egg by Leo Lionni. Have you read it? So sweet. 

Jessica, who is naturally curious and always bringing something interesting home, drags back a large white pebble that turns out to be an egg. Marilyn, who knows everything, knows it is a chicken egg.

"See!" exclaimed Marilyn, "I was right! It is a chicken."

Jessica and the "chicken" become fast friends, but eventually the chicken's mother finds her lost baby and she and Jessica say goodbye. Jessica returns home and remarks how the mother said the funniest thing to her baby...

Don't you just love it?

Interesting thing I discovered, in playing this Instagram game (hashtag #mylittlebookcase), is we don't really own any kids joke books. Nor do we ever check them out of the library. I had a joke book as a kid called Pop-Up Riddles and I loved it ... maybe time to revisit the library.

See you on Instagram?
