What are some good books for 3-5 year old boys?

My daughter is going to a joint birthday party. I know what to get the little girl, but I have no idea what would be good for the boy. He has an older sister and I'm not sure what books they have already. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

  • I love the book idea!! Sure, boys love cars but they usually have more than enough toy cars and trucks. Here are some books that are not totally popular (ie: these aren't the ones that EVERYONE has) but we love. And you can always just include a gift receipt incase they already have it and want to exchange.
