Three Books to Make You Laugh
Dance! Dance! Underpants! by Bob Shea
Let's be honest, just the title will have everyone laughing. Poor Ballet Cat can't get Butter Bear to dance. Every time Ballet Cat thinks Butter Bear is ready to dance something gets in the way. Students will love the back and forth between these two characters --- and the real reason Butter Bear just can't dance.
This book will make a fun read aloud. Kids will love the way one thing leads to another in this story where Bear comes to the river and soon finds himself in one adventure after another. This circular text is sure to make everyone laugh as Bear and his friends find themselves in quite a predicament.
Brief Thief by Michael Escoffier and Kris Di Giancomo
This book was shared with me by one of literacy coaches, Andrea Waselko, and I can't believe I hadn't seen it. It is hilarious! Leon the Lizard takes a quick trip to the bathroom only to realize he doesn't have a toilet paper. What's a lizard to do? He finds some old underwear close by, but soon what he thinks is his "conscience" tells him to get those cleaned up. You won't believe what happens next?
