Favorite Things: Books for Toddler Boys 2 and Under

Little buddies sure are fun to shop for.  Just in case you are gearing up to do some Christmas shopping soon, I thought I would share a few of our favorites...things that have made life with our little buddy through these first two years tons of fun.

Since Cooper was born, we have read to him.  We were very purposeful with reading to him and with him every day and night.  He just loves books, and often times can't get enough.  During my time in the School of Education and as a teacher, I picked up so many fairs, scholastic orders, gifts, and special personal purchases.  I just couldn't be more pleased to share my love for children's literature with my son.

So in that spirit, we'll start with some of our favorite books.  (This might seem like a random mish mash, but in our bookshelves full of books, these are a few that stand out as memorable in Coop's first two years.

Fish Kisses: a bedtime story    Ibaby: Goodnight, Baby   Daddy Cuddles

How Do I Love You    Choo Choo    The Potty Train

The Little Engine That Could    The Huffin Puff Express ( A Golden Tell-A-Tale Book)    The Truck Book (Pictureback(R))   

Where the Wild Things Are Tools  More Spaghetti, I Say! (level 2) (Hello Reader)
