Kids Who Laugh: How to Develop Your Child's Sense of Humor
Instilling the Gift of Laughter as a Lifetime Tool for Success
by Louis R. Franzini, Ph.D.
A reviewer writes:
"Kids Who Laugh is a very informative, enjoyable and worthwhile book. I believe that one of the most important gifts I can give to my children is the gift of a sense of humor. Dr. Franzini, with his insightful text and helpful techniques, helps a parent achieve this goal. Dr. Franzini makes a convincing argument that a sense of humor is a learned trait and, after reading this book, I agree. Even if you already have a well developed sense of humor, this book helps you transfer that trait to your children."

Humor, Play & Laughter:
Stress-Proofing Life with Your Kids
by Joseph A. Michelli, Ph.D.
A reviewer writes:
"Though childless, I found Dr. Joseph Michelli's book "Humor, Play & Laughter" a highly entertaining read. I was particulary impressed with the "Activities" sections, which lacked the boring exercises found in other such books, replacing them with humor and joy. Dr. Michelli possess a fantastic sense of humor and fun - and nowhere does this stand out more than in the Chapters themselves. His treatment and respect for children as little people was very moving. The book kept me rolling. A reading MUST for caring parents, and those working with children."
