The Spring Dance from the Black Lagoon
The Spring Dance from the Black Lagoon - Mike Thaler,Jared Lee

The Spring Dance from the Black Lagoon is a silly book following Hubie's fears about the upcoming school dance.

This book received a score of 420L on the Lexile score, making it suitable for most third grade readers. It can be used as a fun independent reading, or as an introduction to your school's upcoming dance. It could also be used to introduce a creative writing exercise about students finding out that things they thought were scary aren't really scary at all.

Mother Bruce
Mother Bruce by Higgins, Ryan T. (November 24, 2015) Hardcover - Ryan T. Higgins

Mother Bruce is a silly tale about a grumpy bear named Bruce, who accidentally comes to raise a flock of goslings. He tries to get rid of them, but to no avail.

Mother Bruce received a score of AD570L on the Lexile scale, making it a bit difficult for students to read independently. This would be a great book to use as a read aloud just for fun, or to teach sequence of events. This is a fun book that is humorous for both children and adults.

The Runaway Bunny
The Runaway Bunny by Brown, Margaret Wise (2006) Paperback - Margaret Wise Brown

The Runaway Bunny is a sweet tale about a young bunny who threatens to run away from his mother, and his mother threatens to find him. It is silly and imaginative in the two bunnies' creative plans. 

This book received a score of AD600L, which would make it difficult for independent readings, but is a great story for a read aloud. This book would be great to read just for fun, or could be used to teach about imagination or cause and effect. It is a classic book and children of all ages will love it.

Library Lil
Library Lil - Suzanne Williams, Steven Kellogg (Illustrator)

Library Lil is a silly book about a librarian like no other. She breaks the librarian stereotype with her unique personality and even managed to get the rowdiest of people to take to reading.

Library Lil recieved a 4.5 on the Flesch-Kincaid readability scale which would make it suitable for students around the fourth grade level. This would be a good book to teach about breaking stereotypes as Lil strays from the traditional librarian role. Other characters in the story also break the stereotype norm as the book progresses.
