The Children’s Books department here at The Book Table is filled with great bed time stories, teaching stories, and anytime stories. As employees, we particularly love to read the silly stories that make us laugh. Check out some of our favorites below.
These books are not only fun for kids, they’re fun for adults!
This Is Not My Hat by Jon Klassen
A fish has stolen a hat.
And he’ll probably get away with it.
Interrupting Chicken by David Ezra Stein
It’s bedtime for the little red chicken, and Papa is going to read her a story.
“You’re not going to interrupt the story tonight, are you?” asks Papa.
“Oh no, Papa. I’ll be good,” says the little red chicken. But she just can’t help herself!
Whether it’s Hansel and Gretel, Little Red Riding Hood, or Chicken Little, as soon as the story gets going…out jumps the little red chicken–right into the story–saving the characters from danger and ending the story early.
Will that chicken ever get to sleep?
That Is NOT a Good Idea! by Mo Willems
One day, a very hungry fox meets a very plump goose. A dinner invitation is offered. Will dinner go as planned? Or do the dinner plans involve a secret ingredient…?
(Don’t forget to listen to the baby geese!)
From the brilliant mind of Mo Willems comes a surprising lesson about listening to your inner gosling.
