9 Hilarious Children’s Books You’ll Never See Published

Anyone who has ever read children’s books knows the premise of each story isn’t necessarily realistic.  A guy named Jack who finds some magic beans that grow into a stalk that goes high, high into the sky? Really? I have a feeling I know what Jack got into, and although it was something organic, it wasn’t beans. And Jack is stingy and needs a lesson in sharing.

    Some wonderful, beautiful, probably rich (so I have no way of knowing this, but in my mind, she is) mom of 4 did this activity with her children and it came out perfect. I couldn’t wait to try ours! Seems simple enough. You put a bunch of broken crayons on top of pumpkins and sit them in the sun. Fool proof, but apparently not Ashlen proof. READ MORE
