LUSTIG! - Our Top 4 Children's Books in German - (part 2: beginning readers and chapter books)

April is National Humor Month! Its aim is to make people aware that laughing helps to cope with stress and stay healthy. Or as we say in German: Lachen ist gesund.

According to research of Stiftung Lesen, kids love books that are funny. If your child is a reluctant reader - or reluctant to listen to German books - these super funny books for children 6-10 years might suddenly have him glued to the book or ask you to read him some more.

ELLA IN DER SCHULE

(Vol. 1)

It is a fun school day again: today it is the first swim lesson. The teacher tells Pekka to put the soap at the edge of the pool. Pekka must have somehow confused the pool with a bath tub. Pekka places the soap at the edge. And sure enough, the teacher slips. Just after he dived into the pool - with his clothes on. What is wrong with him?

Timo Parvela was a teacher before he started writing books - about school life. ELLA IN DER SCHULE is the first part of a series all about Ella and her friends and class mates that have kids in Finland and Germany laughing for for more than 10 years now. For beginning readers and their parents. . All volumes of the series work as stand-alones, too.

DIRK UND ICH

Andreas and his six-year old brother always end up in crazy situations. Whether they go sledging and end up in a pond, meet up with other kids for a birthday party and start discussing whether Jesus was a boy or girl or on Nikolaustag. And even more so, once their little baby brother Björn is born.

Told in a simple language, close to that of children, Andreas Steinhöfel retells stories from his own childhood in the 70ies. Nowadays children probably are more protected - still: this stories are a good laugh and show the special bond that siblings have.
