Unicorn Thinks He's Pretty Great

Love to laugh? Love to laugh when you're reading to your kids? Here are a few funny picture books perfect for sharing (and laughing over) together:

  • Unicorn Thinks He's Pretty Great by Bob Shea - Shea is a master comedic picture book creator, but this one is pretty special because of its perfect details (Unicorn can make it rain cupcakes, while Goat can only prepare marshmallow squares) matched with energetic illustrations that practically leap off the page.


  • The Cranky Ballerina by Elise Gravel - Ada doesn't want to go to ballet. In fact, it makes her very, very cranky! Lots of delightful, giggle-inducing expressions throughout, and a thoughtful introduction to a conversation about what activities your child might rather be doing.


  • Me Want Pet! by Tammi Sauer - Perfect for reading aloud (be sure to get your best caveman voice ready).
