Being funny can be intimidating, but with tricks of the trade on how to warm up an audience, choose age-appropriate material, use facial and vocal expressions to lure them in, and select props, you're on your way to the comedy club. Young children won't be able to hold in their giggles after such programs as "The World's Worst Ice Cream Store, " and intermediate-age school kids will love to take part in book-theme parties in honor of Captain Underpants or such special celebrations as "Boo Ha Ha." Even those middle and high school students, once convinced to participate in "Comedy Club" (a program that combines reading and "stand-up") or "Spoonerisms" (a wordplay game), will be rolling in the aisles. An annotated bibliography lists more than 300 of the funniest books available, sorted by category and age, including picture books, fractured fairy tales, folklore, and the funniest children's authors and illustrators. A complete resource for getting children and young adults snickering and having fun in the stacks with innovative programming that uses humor, Something Funny helps you to connect with children and young adults and, along the way, make the library the hippest place in town!
