Best Funny Picture Books for Kids to LOL!
10. Leonardo The Terrible Monster by Mo Willems
My son thinks the part where the little boy explains why he was crying is sooo funny that he’s actually memorized it! The story is about a cute little boy monster who can’t scare anyone so he finds the most scard-y cat kid in the world to scare. [picture book, ages 4 and up]
9. Everyone Poops by Taro Gomi
The Japanese don’t find bodily functions like farting or pooping embarrassing or funny, so it takes a Japanese person to write a book about poop! And, of course, it cracks up my son. He loves potty humor! [picture book, ages 4 and up]

The zookeeper puts up the wrong sign next to the rhino and the rhino is not happy about it! [picture book, ages 4 and up]

Honorable Mention Funny Picture Books to LOL with Your Child
Peep and Egg: I’m Not Using the Potty by Laura Gehl, illustrated by Joyce Wan
Egg is not sure about potty training but Peep has a strategy to lure Egg to try. Spoiler alert: books and potty training are natural partners in crime! This is a gentle and humorous potty training book that kids of all ages will enjoy. My son who is 13-years-old thought this book is hilarious! [picture book, ages 2 and up]
Hot Rod Hamster by Cynthia Lord
This book arrived in the mail today and my five-year-old son insisted that I include it on the “funny book list on your blog.” He made me read it 5 times today! This is Cynthia Lord’s first picture book. She also wrote the Newbery Winner chapter book Rules (which is outstanding). This is a funny, rhyming book that appeals to hot rod racers! It’s a very cute story about a hamster who is going to a hot rod race and a dog helps him build his race car. It’s really fun to read aloud! [picture book, ages 4 and up]
