I'll admit it, right here: I did NOT like nonfiction when I was a kid. Those books were boring! (I went back as an adult and looked; without naming names, the ones that I remembered were indeed awful!)
The good news is that today's children's nonfiction has a much higher standard and the books published these days are usually engaging and interesting and sometimes even hilarious!
I enjoy finding new tickle-my-funny-bone titles and sharing what I've learned about the challenges and rewards of writing and reading humorous children's nonfiction. My colleague Ann Matzke, who has also studied children's nonfiction in-depth, will often join me at presentations. Our presentation bibliography for "What's So Funny About Children's Nonfiction" and an annotation worksheet are attached, if you're curious.
