No Teachable Moments, Just 8 Books Your Kids Will Go Crazy For

Your kids will want to read these over and over again.

By Jancee Dunn, POPSUGAR

There are so many children's books to choose from these days, and while they're all unique, they usually have one thing in common: they teach lessons. While it's great for your kid to read about cleaning their room and being nice to others, sometimes you just want to let them laugh uncontrollably during story time for no particular reason other than having fun. And a good giggle delivers plenty of benefits, too. Research shows that laughter decreases stress, encourages bonding, and boosts the immune system. Keep reading for eight picture books that are silly, fun, and so clever, you won't mind when your kids beg you to read them over and over again.
