My son loves the "Don't touch Monster" and the other "Don't touch" books. They have textured parts that the kid can feel. He also loves ANY interactive book like lift a flap or slide something over. In term of non-interactive books he seems to like the Llama Llama books. Llama Llama Red Pajama gets read a lot and there are several holiday books so we have been reading Llama Llama Holidrama and Llama Llama Jingle Bells.
