Reading is a great way for children to expand their imaginations and to learn to communicate more effectively. Many of the children’s books also teach a lesson and help them to grow mentally and emotionally.
Finally, there are those books that just make kids laugh and that is all they are intended to do with no lessons to learn. The following are six of the most popular children’s books that make kids of all ages giggle.
The Most Popular Children’s Books
Green Eggs and Ham
Green Eggs and HamEveryone knows Sam and knows that he does not like green eggs and ham. Or does he?
This Dr. Seuss classic put Sam into many different scenarios where he is pressured to try this meal he clearly does not like.
At the end of the story (spoiler alert!) he finds that after tasting green eggs and ham, he actually does like them.
Loved by both adults and children alike, this classic book teaches some important lessons:
- always have an open mind and
- never give up
- don’t run away from problems
Makes a great gift for birthdays, Christmas, or just because 😉
Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs
Children have wild imagination! It’s probably true that they already dreamed up a scenario like this book’s story line.
Raining yummy food and drinks?Of course!!!
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs takes a hilarious look at what would happen if this were really the case.
With orange juice rain and mashed potato snow, nobody goes hungry in the hilarious tale.
What a great way to engage a child’s imagination! And a sure way to make everyone laugh!
What child goes through their young lives without ever hearing the word, “no”? There are very few.
This hilarious tale is about a boy named David who is always being told no.
He is more like normal everyday mischievous children than the protagonists in some of the other popular books and children can relate to him.
Just as every child makes mistakes, little David gets into all kinds of trouble.
It’s a good conversation starter, and in the end, it will reassure every child that no matter how many times they make mistakes, mommy will still love them.
This funny book is perfect kids of all ages (and that includes the adult “kids” too).
It’s the perfect story for parents who are attempting to potty train their child. The book compares the poop of many different animals by size, look and smell.
In the end, it also talks about human poop.
There aren’t a lot of words: it’s mostly pictures.
I heard this book helped some children learn to let go of their fear to poop.
Fun little book to learn about this important body function.
I don’t think there’s a child who does not love Curious George!
Curious George gets into a great deal of trouble because of his curiosity.
And while the trouble is never serious, it is always hilarious and will have the children in stitches from beginning to end.
The stories are short, so they’re easy to read even to younger children.
A great collection of stories your kids will love!
The True Story of the Three Little Pigs
A well known children’s story, this is a hilarious take on the tale from the wolf’s point of view.
The wolf was trying to prove he was innocent of doing any huffing or puffing or trying to blow the pigs’ houses down in a very humorous way.
He wasn’t really trying to hurt the pigs: he just wanted some sugar to bake a cake for his grandmother.
This funny story will have the kids giggling and they’ll learn that there are two sides to every story.
The majority of parents read their children stories when they put them to bed at night. What better way to end a great day, than with a silly story that gets everyone laughing and smiling?
It’s hard to have nightmares when your last thoughts before you close your eyes are the silly antics of Curious George or imaging meatballs and orange juice raining down from the sky.
