Gift Ideas For Little Boys

#1 The Town That Fooled The British

On August 10, 1813, with the British navy advancing up the Chesapeake Bay to destroy the shipyards in St. Michaels, Maryland, young Henry Middle thinks of a way to save his home town from British cannons. The lanterns he carries will be of use to the militia. 

#2 Andrew Henry's Meadow

Andrew Henry is in the middle--and he's always with himself. He doesn't mind this very much, because he's an inventor. This is a heart-warming story about children who want to feel special and appreciated for who they are. 

#3 Snipp Snapp Snurr Learn To Swim

It took many lessons and a lot of practice, but in time Snipp, Snapp, and Snurr proudly showed their parents their new skills―and then they even won a swimming contest!

#4 Locomotive

It is the summer of 1869, and trains, crews, and family are traveling together, riding America’s brand-new transcontinental railroad. These pages come alive with the details of the trip and the sounds, speed, and strength of the mighty locomotives; the work that keeps them moving; and the thrill of travel from plains to mountain to ocean.

#5 Henry the Explorer

On the night of the blizzard Henry and Laird Angus McAngus (Angus for short) read an exciting book about exploring. Exploring is hard work. It makes one hungry. It can be a little alarming if one does seem to see a bear. And sometimes, although explorers do not get lost, they are not quite sure which way to go. 

All of which makes exploring what it is and makes Henry’s exploring worth reading about.

#6 Pond

When Matt is out for a late winter hike he sees a trickle of water in the old deserted and junk filled dirt pit at the edge of his neighborhood. 

With quiet appreciation, Matt can imagine the pond that must once have been there, shining in the early spring light, freezing in the winter for skating and the perfect place for swimming in the summer.

#7 Billy and Blaze

Billy was a little boy who “loved horses more than anything else in the world.” Imagine how happy he was when he got his very own pony for his birthday! From that day on, Billy was seldom seen without his new friend, Blaze.

#8 Construction Site Mission: Demolition!

In Construction Site Mission: Demolition!, the construction team we all know and love has an exciting job to do—smashing, crushing, sorting, hauling.

Ultimately, this picture book is about working together, breaking things down, and cleaning it all up at the end of the day.
