What's even funnier than being tickled? Pinkalicious can help you out with this answer!

Pinkalicious: Tickled Pink.
July 2010.

After checking out a joke book from the school library and being accused of not having a funny bone of her own in her body, Pinkalicious takes matters into her own hands, accepting Tiffany's challenge of a laugh-off to see who is the funniest. She struggles through the night to come up with something, until finally settling upon her choice. Does she have a funny bone in her body? Can she be funnier than Tiffany? I'll leave you to be the judge of that!

I've always been a believer that the best way to encourage children's reading is to find out what they like - whether it be sports, animals or even jokes! This book allows children to see the joy that can be found within the pages of a book! Pinkalious is a character who appeals to so many young girls and the books offer a wide variety of topics... this is definitely a character you'll want to share with the little girls in your life!

Learning/Reading Activity:
  • Host a laugh-off of your own. Take your child(ren) to the library and help him/her select a book of jokes. Then, encourage your child to read through and find the joke they think is the funniest. After dinner one night, share your jokes with each other and then take a vote to see who's was funniest!
