One of my favorite kids’ books is NAKED! by Michael Ian Black.
Naked! is a fun & fast paced story kids really enjoy. I read it with lots of enthusiasm and by the third naked I’m usually not alone saying, “Naked!” The illustrations are wonderful. I find this a good book for breaking the ice with kids that you have just met. Check below for some other great books for breaking the ice with kids!

Nobody Likes a Goblin by Ben Hatke
Goblin is a homebody who is raided and loses his friend, Skeleton. He must go into the world to rescue Skeleton and find out how the real world really feels about goblins.
King Baby by Kate Beaton
Look out lowly parent peons! King Baby’s reign is just beginning! This book will be a guilty pleasure for parents and kids alike. It is a little tongue in cheek to veteran parents as Beaton describes real life with a new little one from the little ones perspective. Kids will love the pictures and King Baby’s demands.
Lion Lessons by Jon Agee
A young lion (a human boy in costume) does his best to learn how to be a proper lion from the master (a real lion)- and after grueling lessons, learns the most important lesson of all. A funny book with great laugh-aloud appeal.
A Child’s First Book of Trump by Michael Ian Black
Yes, this is a political satire, but it’s so brutally frank and honest about the state of our current political landscape in a way kids (and their parents) will actually understand and relate.
