Get a BIG Laugh this Perfect Picture Book Friday.

I recently came across a YouTube video of a grandmother reading a picture book to her grandson. With each page turn, snickers turned into laughs that grew and grew to the point where tears formed and she could barely read. The story, the humorous illustrations, and the grandmother’s infectious laughter had me hanging on to my chair to keep from falling off. Hands down, this is one of the funniest picture books.

If you happen to know someone who never or rarely finds anything funny, get a copy of this book and ask them to read it aloud to you. My guess is that you’re going to hear some BIG laughs.

The Wonky Donkey

I was walking down the road and I saw…

a donkey,

Hee Haw!

He was a wonky donkey.

Synopsis from AmazonChildren will be in fits of laughter with this perfect read-aloud tale of an endearing donkey.

Why do I like this book? Face it, we all love reading or listening to something that makes us laugh, and this book delivers BIG laughs. The story about being okay with who you are – faults and all, plus comical and heartfelt illustrations which raise the humor to the ceiling, make this a must-have book which I quickly added to my shelf of favorites.
