The Funniest Thing I Ever Did See

By Joe Bacal and Malcolm Whyte

What's the .....iest thing you ever did .....?

The pages of The Funniest Thing I Ever Did See burst with silly, surprising adventures of monsters, dragons, dinosaurs, wild animals and friendly pets - everything a youngster could wish for.

Deceptively simple verses deliver basic concepts of observation, invention, manners, kindness, fear, and friendship, among others. This rhyming wordplay introduces principle of adjective-comparative-superlative grammar, while the two-page exercise at the end of the book invites the reader to write his/her own experiences - real or imagined - and discuss them.

Black and white cartoon drawings present an additional creative activity by being suitable for coloring-in as they reinforce retention of the verbal message. The Funniest Thing I Ever Did See fosters the joy of reading and writing.
