Books and Humor

March 16, 2017

Humor is my armor. I tend to use it when something frightens me, when I’m nervous, when something sad happens, or when I just feel silly. So it may not surprise you that when it comes to picture books, humor is my first choice. A book that makes me laugh fills my heart with joy.

I’m participating in the fabulous Reading for Research Month Challenge (ReFoReMo). Informative daily posts accompanied by a list of mentor texts are provided for participants to read, research, and learn more about writing. I’m loving the list of books provided. Since I’m addicted to humorous books, below are a few of my favorites. If you want to put a smile on your face, check out these books.
