Our house is filled with books but for the last 10 years we’ve been reading about princesses, ponies and fairies! With a little dude now in tow it’s time to start getting my feet wet in the super hero, din0saur and truck department! I’ve been loving all the new finds and recommendations I’ve been getting and just had to pass on my growing list of wants and haves for my little guy…


I can not begin to tell you how much I adore this first book! The cover caught my eye at a book store and the story made me laugh out load! It’s my new favorite gift to give at a baby shower and everyone needs to add it to their library but any little boy would eat this story up! Children make terrible pets by Peter Brown is my #1 new favorite children’s book!


My sister-in-law sent Gunner this darling book that I adore! Indestructibles: Baby Faces! These books ar ejust like they say: Indestructible! They are made out of cool material that is drool, dribble, chew and rip proof, perfect for the early reader and grabber in your family. They make an entire collection of these durable things so load up! This one about different faces is too cute!


I’m a sucker for darling design so this book “Moby Dick,” part of the “BabyLit” series, totally caught my eye. These board books take classic tales and presents them to your little one in a simple and beautifully illustrated way.


DC Super Hero ABC 123 is any little boys dream. This board book is here to help any little super hero learn his ABS’s and 123′s! Makes learning fun and has your little guys favorite Super Heros front and center!


Hi-yah!!! The Three Ninja Pigs takes a classic tale and puts a humorous martial arts twist to it with a surprise ending you’ll love! Your little guys will adore this tale and chance are will act out a little karate by the books end!


What wouldn’t you love about a book called ” Dragons love Tacos!” Come on! A hysterical tale of dragons and tacos! Sign me up! Beautifully illustrated and ready to entertain! new York Times Best seller!


Wonder is a book that every house hold needs to own! I read this book to my then 8 and 6 year old last year and I was blown away. This story is so well written and helps teach a beautiful lesson about compassion, bravery, friendship and the joy of the human spirit! Buy it! Read it! Love it!


Magic Tree House books are all about adventures! This series is fantastic for boys and girls but the adventure part of it all is a great appeal for any boy ready to take on a dinosaur, join in with Knights and conquer Mummies!


Dangerous book for Boys is a book for every boy from eight to eighty, covering essential boyhood skills such as building tree houses*, learning how to fish, finding true north, and even answering the age old question of what the big deal with girls is.

    The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales. Love that book!
    No, David! Is also a cute book. It’s one of those books that any kid could read because the words are really just “No, David!” lol.
    I don’t think books should be gender specific. A girl could enjoy a book about building treehouses and a boy might like the storyline of Sleeping Beauty. :)

    We love “I love You Stinky Face” and “What Color is Your Underwear?” First one sweet, second one funny for little boy sense of humor.
