So, hello world! Here I am. First video post, looking rough. If there were a “makeup” filter on IMovie I would have used it. But there isn’t. So enjoy…haha.
Today’s video blog talks about using humor to hook kids and I will be sharing one of my all time favorite picture books I’m Bored by Michael Ian Black and Debbie Ohi.
If you loved I’m Bored, you’ll be as excited as I am to check out their new book Naked, which will be on shelves next summer.
Check out Debbie’s site at http://debbieohi.com/ where she has great classroom activities, printable goodies, and other fun things that go with I'm Bored!
Some of Michael Ian Black's other books for children are listed below. (One of my favorites of his is The Purple Kangaroo.)
I’m Bored was published by Simon and Schuster in 2012.
As a reading specialist, I've compiled lists over the years of hilarious books for kids. Feel free to download this list.
And let me know what I've missed. (I'm sure there are many!) What are some of your favorite hilarious picture books?
I hope you enjoyed the first Mondays with Mandy (or Mira)! See you next Monday!
