April Fools' Day is a great excuse for parents to share some silly books with their children. One of my favorite types of books to read as a family with my children are joke books. It can be a fun, whole-family activity passing the book around and taking turns telling the jokes. Laughing coupled with reading with each other is magical!

Here are 5 joke books that you can share with your whole family.
