These books for boys are some of my most favorite picture books for the preschool age. I have a strong love for books and have collected so many since they kiddos were born. Their shelves are literally overflowing.
I covered my favorite books for babies, and here are my favorites for the preschool-aged boys. You should grab them all!
Books for Boys
Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site – Such a classic book for boys, and for good reason. Lovely illustration and soothing tones for bedtime.
When a Dragon Moves In – A fun and silly book that explores imagination… and how awesome it would be if you had a pet dragon!
I Believe in You – Reminds children of their self-worth, how very special they are and that you believe in them. We have several Marianne Richmond books and they are absolutely amazing. I adore each and every one.
How Do Dinosaurs Eat Their Food? – This whole series of books are fantastic. They’re fun and playful and teach manners like playing nice and taking care of pets.
Goodnight Baseball – We borrowed this at the library and absolutely adored it. Such a sweet story about a dad and his boy going to a baseball game. Perfect for bedtime.
My Dad – Another dad/son book that is sweet. It also points out some of the more masculine things boys do with their dads like toot!
I’m a Big Brother – If your little boy happens to be gaining a new sibling soon, this is a great book on how to care for the little baby and how special they continue to be.
Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are? – One of my all time favorite Dr. Seuess books. It goes through a silly list of characters less fortunate than you.
The Poky Little Puppy – This one is so old I had it when I was little! Brady LOVES this book and it has a great message: listen to your mom!
Marvel Super Heroes Storybook Collection– If your little boy is an Avenger fan then he will love this. All the superheros and Avengers in one big story book. Brady (and Paityn) both love this.
I’d love to hear your suggestions for little boys books!
