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.
