Board Books for Boys

Several people gave me board books when S. was born, which I really appreciated so that he wasn’t stuck with his sister’s chewed-up copies of Goodnight Moon and Happy Baby Colors. Relishing my first time as mom to a boy, I especially loved the boy-themed books people gave me (I know this doesn’t sound politically correct…I recognize these books are great for girls, too, but having grown up in a family with just daughters, I liked getting these recommendations). Here are some of S’s favorite books that he received in his first year. He is nearly 3 and we still read these all the time:

My Car Board Book($6.99). The author, Byron Barton, has some other great board books too. The main “character” in My Car has the same name as S., so we love it even more.

Sports A to Z($5.95). From archery to zamboni, this book was educational for Mommy, too.

That’s Not My Train (Usborne Touchy-Feely)($8.99) This book has lots of touch-and-feel parts which S. enjoys. It’s part of a whole transportation series.

Diggers: Usborne Touchy-Feely Series ($15.95). This is our favorite of the series.

Any other suggestions for fun board books for boys? Post them in the comments!

    Thanks for posting these! My son is only 10 months old but has been pretty much stuck with my daughters hand-me-downs. I'll have to look for a few of these next time I'm out.
    Thanks again.

    We have Sports: A to Z and my son LOVES it! I like to include it a part of a gift when my friends have boys. He just turned 3 today and some of his other favorites are:
    – Hungry Monsters: A Pop-Up Book of Colors by Matt Mitter, Jo Brown (Illustrator)
    – Hello, Mr. Met! by Rusty Staub, Danny Moore (Illustrator)
