Ocean Books for Toddlers {Ocean Animals Unit Study}

Sharing is caring!

As part of our ocean animals unit study, we are reading.  Reading lots and LOTS of books.  Yes, our little one can sit down and play with a stuff ocean animal or two while we read aloud to them, but they like books too!  So, to keep them from tearing up the “good” books, be sure to get them some for themselves.  Things they can feel and hear!  These ocean books for toddlers are a great addition to our ocean animals themed unit study!

Ocean Books for Toddlers {Ocean Animals Unit Study}

1. Do you know which deep sea creature scares away its enemies by spraying ink at them, or which fish has lights inside its mouth to attract food?  Learn the answer to these questions and other fascinating details about ocean life in this engaging and informative book.  Young readers will delight in Jerry Pallotta’s words and Frank Mazzola, Jr’s illustrations on this alphabetical journey through the North Atlantic Ocean.

2.  Discover amazing and fascinating sea creatures in the hole in the bottom of the sea! Based on the traditional cumulative song, each verse introduces a new creature and its place in the food chain, with the shark chasing the eel, who chases the squid, who chases the snail. Enhanced CD includes videso animation and audio singalong.

3.  There are many colorful creatures to find under the sea. Look through the spy hole and use the clues to guess the creature, then turn the page to count the animals. Watch as toddlers quickly become engaged in the game and learn to recognize and count sea creatures.

4.  Children will learn about all kinds of ocean creatures–from tiny seahorses to great blue whales–in this page-by-page journey through Sea Star Ocean, using special die-cut index tabs to help little fingers turn the pages.

5.  Catch the weirdest, scariest, and most fascinating sea creatures without getting your feet wet! Vibrant color pop-ups of a shark, lion fish, giant squid, devil ray, sea dragon, and viper fish leap off the page. Sea Creatures Pop-up brings water fun to everyone!

6.  Fish, dolphins, and huge whales are some of the sea creatures in this book. Feels Real Books each have “feels real” textures for toddlers to touch and recognize. Books feature vivid color animal photos on every page. With Mom or Dad to read each story aloud, kids will also begin learning about the many different animals that live around the world. Meanwhile, the heavy board covers and pages are sturdy enough to withstand rough treatment from tiny hands.

7.  Amazing animals await young readers in the pages of these wonderful pop-up books. Realistic animal sounds and vibrant pop-up images really bring these books to life! Children will learn all about the savanna, the ocean, the forest, and about dinosaurs, all accompanied by the sounds of wild animals and birds. All books in this series contain sound modules and panoramic 3D pictures.

8.  Grab your snorkel and splash along with outrageous underwater creatures!  Children will delight in the playful, witty language of twenty-one lively poems while they learn about their ocean and freshwater friends.

9.  Let’s explore! Slip the double-sided figure into the acetate pocket to enjoy all manner of exciting activities. Investigate the ocean in this innovative board book. Helps to develop motor skills, as well as promoting discussion and helping to combat gender stereotypes.

10.  Each page of these books contains special movable elements. When they move the parts, kids will see the goats butt, a bear climb a tree, a pelican open its beak, and more! Every book includes amusing text and animal sounds.
