There is no doubt that humor can hook readers. Many of my elementary readers are attracted to books with characters who say funny things or that have plot lines that are ridiculous. Sometimes I don't quite get the humor in the books my students enjoy. But if they like them and it gets them reading then I'm all for it! When looking for something new to read, sometimes I just want a book that I can read without thinking too much. My shelves have several humorous memoirs that fit this bill. Similarly, sometimes students just need a book that gives them a good laugh. The two books I read this week definitely will be good additions to my student library because they will make kids chuckle.
