Kid Humor

A few observation on what’s funny when you’re approximately five years or younger:

  • Sometimes things are funny because the same thing keeps happening again and again.  See No Sleep for the Sheep by Karen Beaumont for example.
  • Other times things are funny because something totally unexpected happens.  See More Bears! by Kenn Nesbitt or Bark George by Jules Feiffer to see this in action.
  • Perhaps the funniest thing, though, is when you know something that someone else doesn’t.  See Sea of Bath by Bob Logan or Fix-it Duck by Jez Alborough.
Looking for more humorous books for kids?  There are lots of great reviews of silly picture books on the Three Silly Chicks blog.
Please share your funny favorites in the comments!

  1. Jez Alborough is beloved, in my house. I run a home daycare, and my crew is five years old and younger, and we read A LOT. There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly is always a hit (especially if you embellish with gross gagging noises – I have a lot of little boys in my life, what can I say). The Napping House, Silly Sally, The Alphabet Mystery, The Deep Blue Sea, and pretty much anything else by Audrey Woods and company. And, of course, Click Clack Moo.
    I’ve noted your picks to share with my crew. Thanks for posting them!
