If you are like me, you have a huge spot in your heart for Robert Munsch. I spent SO much of my childhood reading his books. They are actual masterpieces and I actually came across my little collection of his books not long ago while cleaning mt house.
I sat down and I read of them (The Paper Bag Princess to be exact) and YOU GUYS I loved it like I was a child again. I don’t know what it is about his books but they honestly appeal to everyone at any age. Little Deanna as a child loved the humor in the books and the funny pictures and just found comfort in them. Older Deanna as an adult sees just HOW funny some of the books are and the hilarious situations that parents honestly deal with and I see them as an outlet for teaching and learning.
So, I wanted to share a few of my TOP favs because lets be real…. I love them all. So I’m narrowing it down to just a few (maybe?? so sorry)!
Honestly hilarious. A little kid who just wants to be different in her class so she decides to wear a ponytail but everyone copies her. She keeps trying to be different by changing her hair and it just becomes so outrageous 😂
Basically this is about parents who are just a mess and bring an alligator home from the hospital instead of their baby and everything that would come from that LOL
Just a little boy who keeps his family up all night with his singing! The story is extra funny because it shows the parents frustrations increasingly getting worse throughout the book!
This one just depicted my childhood and going to the store with my parents hahaha. The child puts every sugary bad for you treat into the cart during the whole shopping trip. Dad says no over and over to the point where he just told the child “stand here and don’t move” lol I feel that.
If I remember this one correctly – this is about a girl who loves to get outside and dirty in the mud. Then a mud puddle starts to follow her and she works on trying to defeat the mean mud puddle lol
FINALLY MY ALL TIME FAV ROBERT MUNSCH BOOK……
The Paper Bag Princess
This one is so funny but also a really good story for children to learn from. Princess Elizabeth is supposed to marry Prince Ronald but that is ruined when a dragon kidnaps the Prince and destroys the castle and everything in it. Elizabeth is left wearing only a paper bag. Elizabeth then goes on an adventure to save the prince but when she does he is not happy with her appearance. Elizabeth doesn’t take that type of attitude from Roland. Elizabeth is awesome.
Have any of you read these books? What do you think of them? Lets chat in the comments.
