A little bit of goofiness.

In order to distract myself from troubling world affairs like this and this we spent most of the three days reading some silly books. They kept us/me laughing and a few made us think!

I wasn't able to find this one on Amazon but she does have other that I will be checking out.

There's A Frog In My Throat! 440 Animal Sayings A Little Bird Told Me by Loreen Leedy & Pat Street

A couple of our favorites that we have worked into our conversations:

Does a chicken have lips? meaning No! No! No! (the boys find this hillarious and end up forgetting what they originally asked me for!)

mouse potatoe meaning frequent computer user ~ Wise One

watch it like a hawk meaning guard it carefully ~ Rowdy One

Geogra-fleas! Riddles All Over the Map by Joan Holub

Turkey Riddles by Katy Hall & Lisa Eisenberg

What Do You Hear When Cows Sing? and other silly riddles by Marco and Giulio Maestro

Plenty of giggles!

Thanks for sharing these - I'm going to check them out. We're always looking for things to inject a little silliness in our day!
