Funny Read-Alouds for Preschoolers

Funny Read AloudsRecently a preschool teacher asked me for some read-aloud suggestions. She has a bunch of active boys (ages 4-5) in her class who aren’t very interested in sitting still for storytime. They do enjoy the pigeon books by Mo Willems and books by Jan Thomas, so she was hoping to find other books with a similar tone. This is what I came up with:

  • Count the Monkeys by Mac Barnett
  • Click, Clack, Moo by Denise Cronin
  • Aliens Love Underpants by Claire Freedman
  • Chickens to the Rescue by John Himmelman
  • Even Monsters Need Haircuts by Matthew McElligott
  • Are You a Horse? by Andy Rash
  • Sheep in a Jeep by Nancy Shaw
  • Mrs. McNosh Hangs Up Her Wash by Sarah Weeks
  • The Cow Loves Cookies by Karma Wilson

Do you have any favorite funny read-alouds for this age group that I missed? Let me know in the comments!
