Picture Book to Make Kids Laugh

The countdown to Christmas continues and today I want to share a book for some of the younger kids on your list.  When you give a book at the holidays, it needs to be a showstopper to compete with all the toys under the tree.  With a book titled Naked! you will certainly catch their attention.  Guaranteed!

Title: Naked

Author: Michael Ian Black

Target: Preschool - Kindergarten

What this book is about: 
I would like to say the title says it all, but I will give you a little more!  Our main character gets out of the bath and loves to run around, you guessed it, naked.  Then inspiration strikes and he realizes that being naked with a cape is even better.  There is only one thing that can truly motivate him to get dressed for bed, can you guess?  Well you didn’t think I was going to spoil the fun and tell you?

Why I love this book: 
I love funny books and this one had me chuckling from the first page.  This boy’s pure joy at running around in the buff is hysterical.  The illustrator Debbie Ohi perfectly captures the delight and frenzy of a little boy after bath time. 

Of course, every parent reading the story will notice the harried mother in the background trying to manage the going to bed ritual.  It is captured with both humor and exasperation.  Every child will see their last burst of energy before the inevitable occurs - sleep.  

Just to note, no private parts are shown in this story.  They are creatively covered with the placement of a foot, paper or yes, cape.

Who this book is for: 
Funny book for most kids.  I think just the naked running will have kids laughing from the start.

Final thoughts: 
Please don’t blame me if you kids start enjoying their time in the buff a little more after this entertaining book.
