Favorite Toddler Books

Landon has really taken an interest in books in the past few months. It’s not uncommon for him to bring a stack of books to our laps each evening and ask us to “wead it,” over and over and over again. To remember some of his favorites at this age, I figured I’d do a quick post and share some of those that are getting read on a regular basis. If you have suggestions or favorites please share!

toddler books

1. Goodnight Goodnight Construction Site | A little boy must have. This one is probably Landon’s absolute favorite. He loves reading about the cranes and excavators and dump trucks. I love the way it flows and rhymes and the illustrations are really nice.

2. Duck and Goose Find a Pumpkin | The whole Duck and Goose series is absolutely adorable. I originally bought a Duck and Goose book for Landon because I thought they were so cute, but they’ve quickly won a spot in on our favorite list. Landon practically has this one memorized it and “reads” it with us!

3. Steam Train Dream Train | Written by the same author that wrote Goodnight Goodnight Construction Site, any train loving boy will love this book. Its an almost nightly read!

4. The Very Hungry Caterpillar | I love this one because it encourages counting, I think Landon loves it because he names all the fruits the caterpillar eats, specifically his favorite strawberries.

5. Cars Mini Book Box Set | Anything with McQueen and Mater are winners in our house- Landon loves carrying around these little books and they make for quick easy reads. They’re also board books which make them fairly indestructible, always a good thing with a toddler!

6. Where the Wild Things Are | I’ve been trying to introduce some classics to Landon, and this one is no exception- I love the story, and Landon loves the pictures… “I’ll eat you up, I love you so!”

7. The Little Blue Truck | Another great little boy read- trucks, animals, and mud!


  1. There are many of our favorites in that mix too! Jonah loves books and often takes a stack to bed with him. I've been wanting to do a similar post on my blog but never get around to it! My mom takes Jonah to the library/resource center and keeps track of a lot of the books they read. They get to pick prizes for filling up their reading list! So, he gets really excited to pick out new ones.

  2. Oh and one of the favorites lately is the Pete the Cat series.

  3. These are favorites in our house too! :) We have a "duck & goose" how are you feeling book that Andrew "reads" to us too! :)
