Books That Make Us Laugh - Shinsuke Yoshitake
For the month of April, on the heels of April Fool's Day and in the spirit of rapid vaccinations and all things light and happy and beautiful, I am sharing books that make us (me, Oscar, and the BF) laugh. Check out our first post here.
Today, books by Shinsuke Yoshitake. We were won over by I Can Be Anything in which a child tries to get her mom to guess what she is trying to be. (Think Toddler Charades.) This all goes down at bedtime and the mom is over it (I feel ya mom!) and the kid just keeps busting out the most random and hysterical "things." I laughed so hard every time we read this and Oscar laughed at me laughing so hard.
|This is where I lose it, every time.|
This led to us picking up more books by Shinsuke Yoshitake.
Still Stuck tells what happens when a kid wants to get their own shirt off at bedtime and gets stuck, possibly forever.
The Boring Book goes into detail about just what it means to be bored and some pretty deep and philosophical questions about boredom. (Note - these are also hilarious.)
There Must Be More Than That explores what happens when an older sibling comes home from school one day telling the younger sibling that basically we are all doomed. The wise grandmother informs the younger sibling that we can imagine anything for the future. Which inspires this young person to imagine some pretty amazing new worlds. I think given the current status of the world, this would be the perfect book for any youngster who needs to laugh through it all a little bit.
