20 Best Books For Little Boys Update 05/2022

Children often ask for the same book again and again. Is that true? You can’t figure out what makes that book that book. It happens all the time around here, but it’s hard to find books for boys. At least for me. Call it luck, but I found a lot of things I didn’t expect to like. Some of my five-year-old son’s favorite books are ones that I would never have thought would be big hits. His five-year-old self must have liked these books because he asks for them over and over again. Five-year-old boys are interesting, but I’m not one of them (obviously). There is a chance that with three sons, I won’t be able to fully understand them.

Sometimes, these books make me wonder what makes them so special. A boy at our poetry teatime has made me look everywhere for funny poetry that boys will like. When we read Roald Dahl’s poetry, we drink water from pretty tea cups while we laugh at some of it. My boys love it because it makes them want to write poetry right away. My seven-year-old daughter laughs right along with them, so these books are also good for girls. Or maybe that’s just what having a lot of brothers will do to a girl, too. As a side note, if your child wants to read the same books over and over again, it’s a good sign that they’re close to being ready to read. If you get tired of hearing the same thing over and over, don’t stop. They are making important connections while you are reading. Here are all the best books for boys that I’ve found this year. If you’re a mom with little boys and is having trouble finding good books, I hope this helps.
