Illinois School Library Media Association


We want to give a great big shout out to all the friends we made yesterday at the Illinois School Library Media Association Conference in Arlington Heights, Illinois!

We had a blast presenting a collection of our newest favorite funny books to a standing-room only audience!

Of course there were whoopie cushions, gummy chickens, and quite a few laughs, but we hope everyone left with some great information, too!

We had a lot of people ask us for the list of books we presented so we're
including the titles here.

Special thanks to Christine who made our session run so smoothly and to Chris Graves and all the wonderful folks at ISLMA for inviting us!

That looks like a very fun list of reads! CHESTER IS BACK?!

Three Silly Chicks said...

You gotta love Chester! This is a list with some wide variety in humor. From very absurd to very tender and sweet. But all of it funny!

MotherReader said...

OMG, some of my new favorite books are on that list. We are so in sync.

Three Silly Chicks said...

But that is oh so fitting as we tend to love your WAPB awards! When will you award those, btw?
