The Silly Book is a children's book first published in 1961 and reissued in 2004 by Stoo Hample. It includes silly songs, silly names to call people and things, silly recipes, silly poems, silly things to say, and even "silly nothings". The book was originally edited by Ursula Nordstrom.

At the starting page, it shows two of the main characters, Boodleheimer and The Easter Bunny, (although he looks more like a worm) and is later changed to Mother Goose. It also has a boy and a girl as the main characters, whose names are J.B. Tommy and Louise.

The book also inspired an LP called The Silly Record. In 2010, a new edition of The Silly Book was packaged with the first-ever release of The Silly Record on CD.
