books for toddler boys


Recommended Posts

What are your toddler's favorite books. I'm not really looking for story books. We have plenty of those. I'm looking for fun flap books or other fun books for independent "reading". We have lots of Thomas train books.

My 2 yr. old loves to sit and look at the following:


The Spot board books by Eric Hill.

Curious George board books.

Board books by Leslie Patricelli.

Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See?

The Baby's Catalogue by Janet Ahlberg.

I See and I Hear by Rachel Isadora.


Also, potty books. :tongue_smilie:

When they were toddlers?


Freight Train by Donald Crews (my number one pick for train loving boys!!!)

Everything by Sandra Boyton

Everything by Leslie Patricelli

All the shorter books by Eric Carle

Blueberries for Sal by Robert McCloskey

Knuffle Bunny by Mo Willems

Drummer Hoff by Ed Emberley

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

The Snowy Day

Old Hat, New Hat (and all those early Berenstains books - Bears in the Night, Inside Outside Upside Down...)

Whose Mouse Are You? by Robert Krauss

Goodnight, Gorilla by Peggy Rathman (and Five Minutes to Bedtime)

Goodnight, Moon (I know there's an extensive anti-Moon conversation going on... take it or leave it...)

Anything shorter by Leo Lionni (especially Swimmy)

Anything by Rosemary Wells, but especially all the Ruby and Max books


I can think of more, but I would go on for pages... I would also highly recommend the Cat the Cat books by Mo Willems. These are so new, they weren't around when my kids were toddlers! But they're there now!

"Look, Peter Rabbit" is a lift-the-flap with a mirror at the end that both my boys love.

"Peter Rabbit Touch and Feel"

"Where Is Baby's Bellybutton?"

This series of lift-the-flap books: http://www.amazon.com/Farm-Lift-Flap-Hinkler-Books/dp/1741579325/ref=pd_sim_b_2. Bought all of them on super clearance at Borders.

My younger likes any touch-and-feel books, including all the DK ones and Pat the Bunny.
