The list author says: "These books are guaranteed fun for you and your kids. Particularly good on cranky or sick days. Many of the books I included are just the best by that author, with other books by them also worthwhile."
"This is the first in a series of books about a feather-brained hen and her misperceptions of the human world. Imagine Rose from the Golden Girls as a hen, with a little Amelia Bedelia thrown in. Totally giggle-worthy. The kids feel proud of themselves because they better that the hen. Best with children 3-7 years old."
"I love all of Amy Krouse Rosenthal's books, but this is the one that I think is the funniest. My kids love this book's role-reversal premise. Also excellent by the same author: Yes Day, the trio of Little Oink/Little Pea/Little Hoot, Spoon, and It's Not Fair."
"You can't go wrong with Satoshi Kitamura books. Each one is wacky, well-written, and fantastically illustrated. Try also his Comic Adventures of Boots, Pablo the Artist, and pretty much anything by him."
"This is actually a board book, not a picture book, but WHATEVER! It's just plain hilarious. All Sandra Boynton's books are wonderful, but this, The Belly-Button Book, What's Wrong Little Pookie, and But Not the Hippopotamus, are my kids' favorites."
"This and Arthur's Nose come from the time when Arthur still looked like an aardvark and was much, much funnier. The copy described here looks to be a reprint with updated illustrations...if possible, stick to the old edition."
"We actually have this book in Hebrew, but it's available in English and Spanish, as well. It's about a baby kangaroo who just wants to be shlepped about in mom's pocket all day, and, boy, do mom's identify with the mother in the story."
"More farmyard hilarity. My kids also enjoy other books by David Shannon, particularly Good Boy, Fergus!, A Bad Case Of Stripes, and the book he illustrated with Melinda Long, Pirates Don't Change Diapers."
