Ocean Books For Kids

There are countless benefits to reading aloud to kids, and that’s why it’s one of the best activities to do together. For starters, reading aloud helps to improve language skills by exposing kids to a wide range of vocabulary words and grammatical structures.

It also develops their listening comprehension, as they learn how to follow along when someone is reading aloud. In addition, reading out loud can help foster children’s creativity and imagination. By sharing engaging stories with them, we can open their minds up to new ideas and worlds and inspire them to think beyond what they already know.

So, why not try starting with some of these ocean books:

The Snail and the Whale– Julia Donaldson, author of the famous book The Gruffalo, brings kids another fun book about an unlikely set of friends. Snail and Whale have lots of fun together in this colorful book!

Shark Lady– This children’s book is based upon the true story of Eugenie Clark, aka, The Shark Lady. Learn about her love of sharks, her discoveries, and the inspiring message of going after what you want in life.

The Rainbow Fish -This is a classic children’s book with a wonderful message for children. In it, a fish learns to share his favorite possession, his glittery scales, with his friends!
