Jake Stays Awake
Jake Stays Awake
"Very funny w/great illustrations.  Story about a boy whose parents don't want him sleeping in their bed, so they offer to sleep with him in other places - the tub, the roof, the kitchen counter, etc.  My son loves the silliness of it."
Snowmen at Night
Snowmen at Night
"Fun premise:  What do snowmen really do when you are sleeping?  Plus, the artist has hidden things in each of the illustrations for kids to look for: a t-rex, a bunny, a santa face.  Fun to read!"
Cat Heaven
Cat Heaven
"We lost both our cats this year and this book helped my son deal with their deaths and the concept of heaven.  It helped me, too."
How Do Dinosaurs Play with Their Friends?
How Do Dinosaurs Play with Their Friends?
"A fun way to remind kids that it is important to be kind, polite and respectful to their friends.  Illustrations are great and what boy doesn't love dinosaurs?"
Parts (Picture Puffins)
Parts (Picture Puffins)
"A boy is losing his tooth and is concerned his other "parts" might fall off his body, too.  Hilarious!"
A Treasury of Curious George
A Treasury of Curious George
"8-10 stories of Curious George adventures.  My son got this when he was four and still likes me to read him stories out of it."
Red Cat White Cat
Red Cat White Cat
"A funny rhyming book about opposites featuring great illustrations with cats. "In cat, out cat - thin cat, stout cat".  My son "reads" this to me proudly."
SkippyJon Jones
SkippyJon Jones
"Who doesn't giggle over the imagination of Skippyjon Jones?  We have several books, but the first one is still the best."
Ten Little Mummies
Ten Little Mummies
"Another funny rhyming & counting book featuring mummies, who decide to come out of the tomb and have fun.  My son loves to laugh over it!"
It's Hard to Be Five: Learning How to Work My Control Panel
It's Hard to Be Five: Learning How to Work My Control Panel
"I bought this for my 5 yr old son when he was having some behavioral issues at school.  It explains that it is ok to have emotions and up and down days - it is part of being five and trying to figure out the world.  At the same time, it is a silly book and makes him laugh.  I think it made him feel better the more times we read it."
Bad Kitty
Bad Kitty
"Boy, Kitty gets into some trouble when he loses his temper.  Then he realizes he should have been more patient.  At the same time, my son learns his ABC's!"
Everyone Poops (My Body Science)
Everyone Poops (My Body Science)
"Although we got this book when my son was potty training, he still loves to look at it and he laughs and laughs as it discusses all the ways different animals (and humans) poop.  It is one of the funniest kids books I've ever read - even my mother-in-law laughed when she read it to him. It really did help him go on the potty back when he was 2.5-3."
Mars Needs Moms!
Mars Needs Moms!
"We got this around Mother's Day.  A boy's mom, who he doesn't really appreciate, is kidnapped by aliens and taken to Mars.  He rescues her and realizes how much he really does love her!  All done in a funny way!"
Diary of a Worm
Diary of a Worm
"All of the "Diary" books are pretty funny. My son likes Worm and Fly the best."
Three Samurai Cats: A Story from Japan
Three Samurai Cats: A Story from Japan
"Three different samurai cats try various ways to get a large mouse out of the emperor's house.  The mouse wins out over the first two but the old scruffy third samurai beats him at his own game!"
Frog and Toad Are Friends Book and CD (I Can Read Book 2)
Frog and Toad Are Friends Book and CD (I Can Read Book 2)
"Who doesn't remember best friends Frog and Toad?  I'm so glad my son likes these books.  They have them at his school and he went to see a live production of this book too and loved it!"
The Fire Cat (I Can Read Book 1)
The Fire Cat (I Can Read Book 1)
"This is an older book with sparse illustrations but my son loves the story.  A stray cat who is kind of mean to other cats is taken in by a firehouse and learns the meaning of friendship and being kind."
