Barnyard Dance

Barnyard Dance is an adorable book about animals rocking out at a Barnyard Dance. It’s peppy and fun and my boys adore it!

Never Feed a Shark

Chomp chomp! Your kids will fall in love with Never Feed a Shark! This is a newer book to our collection and my boys ask for it every single night before bed. Definitely an adorable story!

The Wonderful Things You Will Be

The Wonderful Things You Will Be gives me all the feels. I just melt when we read this one and my boys love the sweet illustrations. It’s a book that will be cherished.

The Giving Tree

The Giving Tree is a classic. No need to say more. 

The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Another classic, The Very Hungry Caterpillar is one of my boys favorites! If you had a chance to read my post Caterpillars and Wiggle Worms, you know what a fan of caterpillars my boys are. 

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

We love this one in our house! I’m fairly certain it was Chicka Chicka Boom Boom that made the alphabet click for my boys. I owe it all to the boom boom. 

Little Blue Truck

Little Blue Truck was one of the first books I started reading to my boys. I loved the illustrations and the bouncy rhymes and it seemed to keep their attention from a very early age. I think it’s fair to say it’s the top spot on this list. 

The Monster at the End of This Book

Such a cute story! The Monster at the End of This Book always ends with lots of giggles and “read it again mama!” 

Duck & Goose

While my boys were on to the fact that the “egg” wasn’t really an egg they still absolutely adore this story! Duck & Goose teaches cooperation and taking turns and that is something  a mama can appreciate! 

Little Blue Truck Leads the Way

Another Little Blue Truck story for the win! This time The Little Blue Truck Leads the Way through the city and it could not be more adorable. My boys go crazy over all the vehicles. This story is definitely a close runner up to the original. 

If you loved these titles...

Be sure to check out my children’s book, Melvin the Motorbike. It’s about overcoming fears and believing in oneself.  I wrote this for my boys and they ask for it every night! I hope your little one’s love it just as much!

  1. You are giving me all the feels with this list of books! It makes me think about when mine were little.
    I loved reading “The Monster at the end of This Book” as much as my kids loved hearing it. 🙂
    ” I Love You This Much” and “Giraffes Can’t Dance” were popular with my boys too

    1. Ooh I’ll definitely have to check “I love you this much” and “Giraffes can’t dance” those sound adorable! We always love to add to our book collection.

  2. Great choices! You picked some of my boy’s favorites; the little blue truck and the giving tree. They also like Pete the Cat.
