I love to read, I read everything I could get my hands on when I was a kid. I spent endless nights turning on the light after I was tucked up in bed, reading page after page. Such happy and magical moments I would love to pass on to my daughter as she grows. My husband and I have read to her and with her from a young age and now that she is 2 she has so many of her favorite books memorized that she can basically “read” the story to us herself. While I enjoy all the special times we get to spend over our mutual love for books, there are times when I think I cannot possibly read Dr. Seuss one more time. After a little hunting for some new and fun books I came across some goodies which aren’t just fun for the kiddos, but for us parents too. Check out these hilarous kids books you should definitely add to your collection.
1. You’re Baby’s First Word Will Be Dada
We all know their is a secret war on whether our babes will say Mama or Dada first. Each parenting is rooting for their own team. Take your competition up a notch with this hilarious book by NBC’s, The Tonight Show’s host, Jimmy Fallon and find out how to get your baby’s first word to be Dada.
2. The Gas We Pass
This boo’s humous take on an everyday and normal body function is refreshingly to-the-point and factually correct. It’s never too early to start teaching them about the body, right? Plus, it’s fun to read about something other than farm animals every once in a while.
3. The Book With No Pictures
A kids book with no pictures, you ask? Thats exactly what I thought when I first came across it. But in fact, while it isn’t much to look at, (at all), the hilarious words and sounds the reader is forced to repeat makes this one of the silliest books I have ever read. It will be a sure hit with the kiddos.
4. Seriously, Just Go To Sleep
While a perfectly acceptable book to read to your kiddos, the humor comes from the underlying desperate attempt for your child to go to sleep wrapped up in creative rhymes. It’s the perfect way to enjoy story time while also using Jedi mind tricks to will your child to sleep. At least thats what I like to think.
5. Go The F**k To Sleep
The not-so-appropriate counter part to the above book, yet wildly spot on to the very real parent struggle. I have to point out this ISN’T actually a children’s book. In fact, this book should probably be kept far way from your child’s bookshelf. But books aren’t just for kids, right? While you are picking up “Seriously, Just Go To Sleep” for you to enjoy with the kiddos, pick up a copy of this for you too. We all need to laugh (read: cry) about the struggles of parenting every now and again.
