I don't know about engagaing a two year old boy, but this book engaged his 40 plus year old Uncle who is giving it as a gift. Each noise made whether the train whistle, dog barking or the horse neighing was long and clear enough for a child to enjoy. Not all noisy books sounds are distinguishable, this one is. I had to snatch it away from my son or the poor child, the intended rcipient, would have had no noises left to irritate his parents with Christmas day. The pages are sturdy, should withstand a two year olds loving tender care, illustrations arent fussy and the story line just the right length with plenty of opportunities to use the noises. I'm pleased with it, if the recipient isnt no doubt his uncle will enjoy annoying us with the noises anyway. I'd recomend this for any two to four year old, makes an excellent first reader as well.
