One of my favorite books as a child. I'm glad I can share it with my daughter. She gets very excited and thinks the story is hilarious as Ernie continues to find new places to put things.
My mother always refused to read this book to my sister and me, calling it "silly." Thus, it became one of our favorite books.
This is another of the books I read to my boys when they were young children. It reminds me of the song, "There's a hole in the bucket" Erine comes into the room and puts a pot on Bert's head. Bert asks why he put the pot on his head, which starts Erine on his silly explanations of why he put different things into other containers. This is a fun book to read to young children. I brought children's books out to read to my grandchildren.

Every single time I look into an existing feature/function/process at work, I feel like I'm Bert in this book.

It's a long trail of "well, you see, Bert" until you find out that it's a huge web of pain that needs to be fixed, one thing at a time.

I love this book so much, it's not even funny.

For those of you thinking that it's based off a sketch, you're right! Here's the youtube link:
This was my absolute favorite book when I was little!

Another of my favorite books of all time. I reference it often, and tell people to "put a pot on your head" when things are lost and going in a roundabout fashion. I wish I could find a copy to buy--its out of print!

I belive this was based off the original Sesame Street sketch. Ernie gives Bert a pot to wear after explaining what happened to his cowboy hat. It all starts with the breaking of a piggy bank. Funny.
Oh my gosh! I love this book! It's one of my favorite kid's books! Our copy is like torn to shreds and really well-read, but I still enjoy reading it.
My daughters favorite book in the whole wide world - we read this at least once every night forwards & backwards...
A favorite childhood book. I've never forgotten it--Ernie's wacky logic still makes me smile.

Silly & delightful. Reminds me of growing up in the 80's. Makes a great read aloud.
Great book for young children! I always loved this book as a child. It's hilarious!
