10 of My Boys Favorite Kids and Baby Books

Today is the second day of Amazon's rendition of the Twelve Days of Christmas, 12 Days of Deals, and today's deals are all about Title Loves -- gifts in books and media, so I thought this would be a fun opportunity to share some of our favorite kid's books!

Our boy's are little book lovers! They'll listen to me read almost anything, but they really do have their own personal favorites. Luke loves a lot of the same books that Owen did, and it's no surprises, because they have great rhyme and story. Owen is into longer books now that have more words and less pictures. He is big into storytelling, so he always loves a great adventure story too!

Here are some of their current favorites...

National Geographic Little Kids First Big Book of Animals- This is a fantastic series of books! We have a few of these including My Big Book of Dinosaurs and First Big Book of Why. These books have so much great information and facts displayed in a family-friendly format.

Classic Characters of Little Golden Books- We have tons of stories in the Golden Book format! We love the classics, but there are also more current stories like Ninja Turtle and Star Wars. They're really inexpensive and make a great addition to any children's gift!
Chugga-Chugga Choo-Choo- This is Luke's VERY favorite book right now. He smiles every time I read him the title and it is our choice bedtime book. The story is cute and the rhyme is addicting. I could probably recite the whole book! 

Peek-A Who?- This is a favorite of both our boys! Luke will sit and have me read it over and over again. This is one I'll keep for my grandkids someday! 

Magic Tree House- I read these books to my Kindergarten students when I was a teacher and I looked forward to reading them to my own children someday -- and that day is here!
Baby Touch and Feel- These are something I love to give to a new mom! My littlest guy will sit and marvel at the animal pictures and pet the doggy's fur. He can't get enough of these, and I always have one in the car for him.
B is for Bulldozer Board Book- This story takes readers on an adventure (and the alphabet!) as busy construction workers build, scoop, and dig their way from A to Z as they build a theme park!

5-Minute Stories- These books are great for bedtime stories for the 2-3+ set. We buy them at Costco whenever we see them, and they have them for a variety of characters; superheroes and princesses and more!

The Fort That Jack Built- Owen and I picked this up at the library months ago and we loved it so much! Owen loves to build forts and he really enjoyed listening to a story about a boy just like him.

The Little Engine That Could- Owen and Luke never tire of hearing this one, and I love that the story has encouraged Owen to whisper "I think I can, I think I can" to himself when he's tackling a tough task.

We also have a set of these Eeboo Tell Me a Story: Mystery in the Forest story telling cards, which are really fun for Owen!

Owen is really into making up stories to tell us, and having us make them up too. These cards are a really great pre-reading activity for young kids and they inspire some remarkable tales -- a great stocking stuffer idea! There are lots of different themes for all interests.

One last thing I have to share, just for today you can get $80 off Amazon Fire 16GB + Amazon Tap Bundle! 

What are your children's current favorite books? Let me know in the comments below -- we always love finding new books to love!

We love the national geographic books too! We have the ocean and it's great! I have one of the treehouse books but haven't decided if Noah's ready for chapter books yet. And peek-a-who was one of Noah's all time favorites as a baby!!
