When you’ve got kids of different ages, it isn’t always easy to find books where everyone can get the jokes.
Jokes the Family Can Share
If family humor is what you’re looking for, then look no further than Jess Keating’s My Life is a Zoo series. The stories are fresh and fun. They would make a nice family gift that everyone can share as a read aloud, and they do equally well as a gift to keep pre-teens and teens reading (and laughing out loud!). Here are the titles in the series:
- Book 1: How to Outrun a Crocodile When Your Shoes Are Untied
- Book 2: How to Outswim a Shark Without a Snorkel
- Book 3: How to Outfox Your Friends When You Don’t Have a Clue
This Read It and Keep selection is part of our Gift of Literacy Pinterest board. There are additional recommendations on our Books Make the Best Gifts and Bookshelf Worthy Books for Your Home Library boards, as well.
If you have a favorite bedtime story or one that is your go-to as a gift, be sure to leave a comment. We’d love to share your suggestions, too.
We are taking a break from our Throwback Thursday Book Review schedule to focus on sharing gift ideas with a literacy twist. These are featured selections from our Gift of Literacy board on Pinterest.
