Funny Poems:

Here are some of the Titles of Funny Poems that we have been reading together for Family Fun. There are so many hilarious, laugh out loud jokes in children's poetry that we decided to share them with you. We hope that this small taste of poems will only "wet your appetite" for more funny books and poetry to read with your kids.

We are waiting Copyright Permission before we print any poems.

Shel Silverstein Poems;

If you want to start reading fun poetry to your kids, Shel Silverstein is an excellent poet to start with. He has many popular books available, such as Where the Sidewalk Ends, Falling Up, etc. His drawings will make you laugh out loud too.

HUG O' WAR , by Shel Silverstein

My Beard , by Shel Silverstein

Snowball , by Shel Silverstein


Sometimes the funniest thing, for Bob and I, is to hear the kids read the poems, and then wait for them to get the kids joke at the end!

Go to your local library, or just buy the books filled with funny poems by Poets such as Shel Silverstein, Jack Prelutsky, and others. They absolutely deserve their paychecks with such witty, funny, and profound poetry.


Here is a list of Poems we love from Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein, Published by HarperCollinsPublishers:





  • _____

    Some of Shel Silverstein's poems/drawings are a bit too over my kids wit and sense of humor, so I steer my kids to the next page for a poem more their age. You will have to read his poems and see what you think. Regardless of the poems that are for more mature kids, his books are definitely worth the read. I have included only a few of the funny poems that we love. I hope they inspire you to read more to your kids. It's some of our Best Family Advice!


    Here are some of our Favorite Poems in the book Falling Up by Shel Silverstein, Published by HarperCollinsPublishers:

  • SCALE (This one should be on the Weight loss page, it's so funny!)






  • CHRISTMAS DOG (This one should be on my Family Watchdog page!)


  • This is one of my favorite funny poems! (My Dental Background Bias...)

    DENTIST DAN, (Shel Silverstein)

    (Once you see the pictures Shel Silverstein has illustrated with these funny poems, you'll laugh out loud even harder!)

    I am writing the Publishers for Copyright Laws for more Poets, including Shel Silverstein. Everyone needs permission to share these wonderful poems. Here are some of the titles that we love from Jack Prelutsky. Go on, the books or head to the library!
