When it comes to getting my kids interested in reading, the books have to be silly.  Not just funny-noise silly or silly-word funny, but really goofy books.  And quite frankly, I would much rather read the kids an off-the-wall story over a stuffy, long-winded book any day.

Here are 5 silly storybook apps that will keep your kids (and you!) giggling:


pigeonDon’t Let the Pigeon Run This App – featuring characters made popular by Mo Willems, this app captures the the silliness that Willems’ books are known for (it was the first book my son memorized) $5.99



boyntonMoo, Baa, La La La! – this patently iconic Sandra Boynton app is not only goofy, it has also earned recognition from Kirkus and a 5-star rating from Common Sense Media so you know it’s good stuff $3.99



seussGreen Eggs and Ham – I couldn’t post a silly storybook app list without including the silliest of Seuss books, perfectly transformed into an app that will delight a new generation of young readers $3.99
