Our 5 yr old son's US passport has expired - can we travel to Canada and back to the US?

It is completely our fault but we did not realize that our son's US passport expired and have booked flights to visit family in Canada for holidays.

I am a Canadian Citizen with a valid US Green Card.

My wife (his mother) is a US Citizen. She will also be completing her Confirmation of Permanent Residency interview when arriving in Canada.

We will also be traveling with our 7 yr old daughter, who has a valid US passport. (We have filed for both kid's Canadian citizenship paperwork over a year ago - still waiting on it.)

Is it possible to fly to Canada for this visit without a valid passport for him? Will there be issues trying to return to the US?

I have read that his birth certificate might be enough (and bring along the expired passport as well).
