Humor in Children's Picture Books
Serafini, Frank; Coles, Richard
Reading Teacher, v68 n8 p636-638 May 2015
Humorous literature for children has been around since Randolph Caldecott first started writing and illustrating picturebooks. In the article, the authors try to understand what makes picturebooks funny and discuss ways to use humor in the classroom. Many examples of humorous picturebooks are cited to provide teachers with resources for their classrooms.
