My DS is 2.5. We love:
Little red train books
Bears in the night
Any Julia Donaldson ones
Usbourne diggers
One ted falls out of bed
No matter what

Mainly though he loves going to the library and choosing his own stories for the week. There are so many amazing kids stories.

Hairy Maclary from Donaldsons Dairy by Lynley Dodd. Don't know about 2 year olds, but I like them.

Get stuck by Oliver Jeffers. DS2 thinks it's absolutely hilarious and dissolves into fits of giggles.

(And he loves lost and found, up and down, how to catch a star and the way back home. He's a big Jeffers fan.)

Toddle Waddle
Dear Zoo
My Mum - brings a tear to my eye too!
Usborne Noisy Monsters
That's Not My whatever, with added finding of the mouse on each page at great speed
Gruffalo (ad nauseum...)
Flap lifting books about vehicles - especially diggers!
No Bed Without Ted

I often find the library is good for 'trying out' books/types of books that I'm not sure he'll go for.

Elephant Wellyphant
