A book your 5yo boy loves?

Recommended Posts

Emmett's birthday is tomorrow. For gifts we do something to wear, something to play, something to read. We've got the others covered, but not the book.


It doesn't have to be educational or even something he can read on his own. He likes the occasional fiction book, but he really loves encyclopedia type books.


Any ideas?

My 5 yo is not reading yet.


He loves books with detailed pictures like Richard Scarry and Peter Spier. Peter Spier's Noah's Ark and People are favorites. He also like books about animals. We have one Usborne book about Big animals that has several large fold-outs and he pores over it. He also loves anything with knights or Star Wars.


Lately some of his favorite stories are: Billy and Blaze, Train Song (a poem), Leaf Man and Rickki-Tikki-Tavi.


A pp mentioned the Beatrix Potter stories. My kids love, love, love these and the small boxed set is fabulous - just right for little hands.
