I'm guest posting over at Polka-Dotty Place today for Whitney's Mom-Vice Series. This series is about all things little boys to celebrate the arrival of baby Fletcher!
I thought the perfect way to welcome Fletcher would be to share with him our all-time favorite books!

Here are the first 5 of our top 20 favorite picture books for boys (and girls too!):
Boats: Speeding! Sailing! Cruising! by Patricia Hubbell
This is one of our family's all time favorite books (and authors). The illustrations and rhymes are so fun and unique! You should definitely check out the rest of her transportation books too - they are fabulous!
Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel by Virginia Lee Burton
The classic story of Mike and his steam shovel Mary Anne. They are being put out of work by the new modern shovels. How will this old pair find a way to keep working and stay together? (We love this one so much that our 3 year old son's birthday was all about this book!)
The Story of Ferdinand by Munro Leaf
The classic story of how a shy bull who likes to sniff flowers ends up in a bull fight. Our kids' #1 fave book.
The Three Little Gators by Helen Ketteman
A fun and silly twist on the story of The Three Little Pigs. This one is a fave and always gets us giggling!
Alphabeasties by Sharon Werner and Sarah Forss
Animals made out of lots of little letters. Letters made into images. This is such a fun learning tool for teaching your child the alphabet!
To see our next 15 faves, please head on over to Polka-Dotty Place to read the rest of my post!
What are your favorite children's books, especially for boys? Please share! I'm looking forward to adding more great titles to our library list!
And welcome, little Fletcher!
I'm linking up with these awesome parties!
