Best Toddler Boy Books

We are a house filled of boys and wanted to share our current favorite boy books. These books will catch the attention of any rough and tough little guy.




A true classic. My parents read this book to me as a child and now im reading it to my child. A cute little tale about a boy and his imagination full of wild things and a notion that there is no place like home. 


What little boy doesn't love trains?! This book is all about a family traveling together in a train. It's a great family story with details of the familys trip on the train including all the fun noises trains have to offer.



This is kinda a long book but it has a very cute story. Literally, the crayons quit and are complaining as to why they should be the best crayon most used crayon, or used less because they are the best color. My son loves the illustrations. Cute book and would make a great present.



Another favorite boy book. This sweet bedtime read is full of what boys love the most, tractors and construction site stuff. The books talks about each one of the tractors long days and the type of work they do, but after their long day of rough fun its time to go to sleep so they can do it all again tomorrow. 


The "Laughing Kit" is a must. It includes the Tickle Monster book and monster mittens. This book is fun for the whole family. The reader puts on the monster mittens and tickles away while reading. If you don't like smiling and laughing than this book is not for you and your kids. You will walk away with a warm heart and your kids will absolutely love the tickle monster. 



Trucks, trucks and more trucks. Perfect for a little boys truck obsession. Great basic pictures of all kinds of different trucks and descriptions of what each truck does with a fun rhyme to go along. 


A little story about a blue bird who got bonked on the head and nothing seems to fix his poor boo boo. Cute story that kids can relate too since they are always getting boo boos and perfect for the parent who can't seem to comfort their own child. 


This is one of my personal favorites. The writing flows nicely and is a very easy to read to your truck lovin boy. The story is about a dump truck that broke down and tries to grab the attention of different vehicles driving by. You could quite possibly have the phrase "my truck is stuck" in your head after you have read this book a couple of times. At least I do. I think I have memorized the whole book we read it so much.



Beep, Beep! If you are looking for books that teach a good lesson on how to treat others than this is a great book to get. The Little Blue Truck is all about a truck named Blue who has a pack of animal friends to help him out of muddy situation. Friendships and helping others is the backbone to this great toddler read.



Another classic about a fun family trip to go catch a bear. There are lots of fun noises to go along with this action packed bear hunt. 



This book is from the same author and illustrator as Good Night Construction Site (one of our favs). The dream train pulls into the station is starts loading all sorts of fun and silly things in the beds of the trains. 



20 big trucks are stuck in the middle of the street. The story goes down the list of all the different types of trucks and what they do and whats in them. This book is sure to get your boy spotting all types of trucks on your daily drives, which makes for fun car ride talks.

We love the classics. One my youngest boy loves is "The Story of Ferdinand" by Munro Leaf. My oldest boy loved "Goodnight Moon" by Margaret Wise-Brown. I will be looking at some of these others. Thanks.

I love this post. We have most of these books but a couple I've not heard of so I will have to check them out. I'm a boymom too with two Mr Men here so we are always looking for good books. I now know alot about cars and construction. :)

I've only read a few of these, but I'll have to check some of them out! I'm always looking for more books even though we have a ton! I went to school for illustration and I love children's books!

You've given me some great ideas for gifts for my youngest grandson. Your commentary about them made me so excited about reading them to him. Thanks for the reviews and recommendations. I think I'll be having fun reading to my grandson. laurie
