Humor books for second graders
These second-grade reads are packed with goofy, "gooney," drooling pleasures.
By GreatSchools Staff
Loosely based on a variety of famous poems, these 21 wacky poems — accompanied by Lane Smith’s equally goofy illustrations — cover everything from the “Water Cycle” (“It’s raining, it’s pouring/For H20, it’s boring”) to anatomy (“I think that I ain’t never seen/A poem ugly as a spleen”) to parasites (“Mary had a little worm/She thought it was a chigger/But everything that Mary ate/Only made it bigger”). The main thing you’ll learn about science is that it can be a lot of fun. 40 pages.
