I observe how we forget details of what was happening in our lives in the past. We remember people, things, our habits, but not always we can remind at which time we were occupied by them. Knowing this, from time to time I write down lists of what my Boys play with or what are their current interests. I use it as cheat sheets when I’m buying gifts for other kids. So below I list books for 2-4-year-old boys which will keep kids really very attentive and engage them for hours.

For a limited time, you can find many parenting resources for a 96% discounted price here.

books for 2-4-year-old boysFirst Atlas by Anita Ganeri

I’m interested in the world, countries, climates and how people live in different places on our planet so I have fun talking about it to my Sons. And because atlases are introduced to them by a passionate mom, they also love these subjects! Pictorial maps make it easy and fun to explain what where grows, lives or is produced.




Things That Go by Amy Pixton and Stephan Lomp

Vehicles are number one interest of my Older Son. No animals, no heroes and literally nothing can compete with cars, trucks and building site vehicles.

And the Indestructibles series advertises as 100 percent baby-proof.

Farm by Heather Alexander

A book with 100 questions and 70 flaps to lift. While the Older Son looks now only for vehicles, the Younger likes to search for cars, tractors, and animals making wow wow. Every animal makes wow wow. Sometimes a train too.

The book is simple, information that it teaches suit the age of 2-4 but it is really full of these simple facts so that a kid can really get intellectually challenged.

Other books for 2-4-year-old boys from the Life on Earth series:
