Every Wednesday, my daughter and I have a wonderful routine of going to the library together. We will spend an hour or sometimes two exploring the books and looking for new favorites.

My daughter loves all kinds of books, but her favorites are always the ones that make her laugh. My silly girl loves a good chuckle and I love hearing her laugh.
When we find a silly one, the two of us love to get animated and add as much extra fun to an already silly book as we can. We have come across a lot of funny ones, but here are some of our favorite laugh inducing books.
