- Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus,
by Mo Willems.
All the pigeon wants to do is drive the bus. And the bus driver won't let him.
This crazy pigeon begs, pleads, wheedles, and tries all his trickiest tricks.
The pictures and very simple text are hilarious.
- Shark vs. Train,
by Chris Barton.
Who wins if a shark and a train challenge each other to a contest? Well,
it depends. Who is better at high diving? Burping? Trick or treating? Turns out neither one is very
good at the video game competition ("Sure would help if we had thumbs.") Kids will love rooting for their favorite
in these wacky competitions.
- Max's Dragon Shirt,
by Rosemary Wells.
I love Max, the irrepressible bunny who keeps his older sister on her toes. When they go
shopping for a new pair of pants for Max, all he wants is the dragon shirt! Max's antics in the
department store all lead up to Max getting the thing he wants most.
- There is a Bird On Your Head,
by Mo Willems.
This is just one of a hilarious series of Elephant and Piggie books. These funny stories are written in very
simple language, but with more humor than I've ever seen in an early reader. They are so funny that
even 5th graders (and grown-ups) can't seem to put them down. Get the whole set!
- Let's Do Nothing,
by Tony Fucile.
Two busy boys decide to try to do absolutely nothing. As they sit, trying to be as still as statues,
their wild imaginations take them on a crazy journey that makes sitting still impossible!
- The Happy Hocky Family,
by Lane Smith.
I have a balloon. Do you have a balloon? I have a balloon. My balloon is red.
*POP!* I have a string. Do you have a string?
This parody of the 50s-esque early reader will have the whole family cracking up.
- The Diary of a Worm,
by Doreen Cronin.
Dad eats the newspaper instead of reading it. Worm teases his sister, saying her face looks just like her behind!
There is also some good information about worms buried in the very funny text--so it's educational, too!
