Top 6 Funniest Thank You Notes from Kids

There’s no better feeling than seeing a kid’s reaction to getting a new book of their very own. Their eyes grow wide, their jaws drop, and they even scream with excitement.

But many will write to First Book to let them know how much the books meant to them, after the surprise and delight of first cracking open the cover for the first time.

Kids have a way with words. Some melt our hearts, and others put a smile on our faces.

We hope these Top 6 Funniest Thank You Notes, written by kids, will bring you as much joy as the books brought them!
