Check out my list of books that can teach boys all about the meaning of love. These Valentine’s day books for boys are perfect for any day of the year, in fact, they help shape and guide boys to add something that is needed dearly these days…. LOVE!

Boys are incredible beings! I was blessed with three boys… Their sweetness and curiosity have brought me so much joy in my life. Even though some people may think that boys are all rough and tumble, they are made of so much more.

Through the farts, belching, mopping up puddles of pee, being bombarded with darts that are sprayed by Nerf Guns, and scaring me at every golden opportunity, my boys have managed to teach me the true meaning of love. Sounds fun huh? Well, it is! Even if it’s gross.

Love, kindness and sincere empathy towards people are the core values of my boys. As I have watched my boys grow up, they continue to show the world love. Even though the world has not always been kind to them, their love only seems to grow. 

Don’t get me wrong, there have been many times when my boys have been angry, upset, and frustrated, after all, they are human. But as long as I teach them to acknowledge those feelings and move forward past the hurt and towards the love, they will be much happier while making the world a better place.

One of the many ways I help my boys learn the true meaning of love is through books. It just so happens that my boys absolutely love to read, and since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, it makes the perfect scenario to share my favorite Valentine’s Day books for boys. 

Valentine’s Day Books for Boys

I Love You Stinky Face
But Mama, but Mama! Oh…. how I adore this book. Through silly suggestions, a little boy questions the love of his mother by asking her if she would still love him even if he was a monster. A great way to show the endless love parents have for their children. If your boys can’t get enough, here are a few more I Love You Stinky Face Books to check out. 

Love Monster and the Last Chocolate
This Love Monster story provides a fantastic perspective on sharing! When Love Monster starts to worry about sharing his box of chocolates with his friends, he discovers that this act of love is the best gift ever! The entire Love Monster Book Series is a must for every boy who loves Monsters

Winnie the Pooh
Friendship is love. Winnie the Pooh and all of his forest friends will reaffirm that with every story. One of my favorite features of these stories is that all of the characters are included no matter their fears, excitement, or gloom. This particular book is full of not only stories but poems too. These can give your kiddos a chance to read along!

Peter Rabbit
The tales that Beatrix Potter wrote are full of life lessons and adventure. The Tale of Peter Rabbit shows boys just how much their parents love them, even when they disobey.

For the love of trees, Dr. Seuss sure shows kids how to love and appreciate mother nature. This story also shows us the consequences of decisions. Get those boys thinking by asking them what the consequence would be if our actions are based on love.

From the authors of the marvelous Underpants Kid’s Book Series comes a story that will be read over and over. The pirates are on the hunt for treasure…  but this isn’t your ordinary treasure, it’s a pair of golden underpants! Oh yo, ho, ho, pirates love underpants!
