The Best Car and Truck Books for Two and Three Year Olds

by Charise Rohm Nulsen

Best Car and Truck BooksI’ve got a car and truck obsessed two and a half year old, and one of his very favorite ways to indulge this fascination is to read about them. We are huge fans of the library, and we typically have out about thirty to forty books at any one time. Most of these books are car and truck related. Since I’ve spent so much time reading these beloved books with my son, I thought other parents out there might appreciate recommendations for car and truck books that we deem worthy of paying for, requesting from library, or borrowing again and again. This is also a special memory list for me because I’m sure many years from now I’ll still be able to recall some of the rhymes from these books after spending so many precious hours reading them with my son.

Each title is linked to its Amazon listing where you can view a full description of the book. I really don’t think you can go wrong with gifting any of these to a little car and truck lover!

Thanks for sharing your list! E loves all things truck related already. He started making truck sounds a couple months ago without any prompting and he’s been in love ever since.
