Books for Ocean Lovers

Water covers almost seventy-one percent of the Earth’s surface. Bursting with diverse creatures and teeming with mysteries to be solved, oceans are one of the unique habitats on Earth. The world under the blue blanket seems a mystery to kids. Ocean and marine life have been excellent inspirations for children’s book creators. There have been several sea creature books designed for kids. The underwater books for kids include storybooks, non-fiction books, coloring books, and activity books. Fish, sharks, whales, and invertebrates swim through the pages of these underwater books and teach them how oceans function, how aquatic plants and species rely on each other, and how ocean animals have fun and look after their young.

‘Keepers of the Reef’ by Sharon Wismer is one of the best sea creature book for kids that offer a visit to the underwater world of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. The author is a reef ecologist and has wonderfully portrayed the life she experienced through her story. ‘Manfish’ – a picture book by Jennifer Berne, is the story of a boy named Jacques who, as a kid, fell in love with the sea. Jacques dreamed of swimming like a fish and breathing beneath the waves. Jacques Cousteau grew up to become a man-fish as he longed for. He became one of the best-known oceanographers in the world. This lovely underwater book is sure to inspire young enthusiasts.

Our underwater book, ‘The Seabalance’ is meant to introduce kids to the ocean ecosystems and how the different sea creatures contribute to the balance of the ocean. This STEM book uses a story as a hook to grab kids’ attention and introduce the scientific concepts in a fun way. We have supplemented our sea creature books for kids with ocean-themed activity sheets to nurture their interest and imagination.

Non-fiction sea creature books for kids by National Geographic are well known for their high-resolution real-life photographs. National Geographic Kids First Big Book of the Ocean is an adorable underwater book for kids with illustrations that include several high-interest sea animals, such as dolphins, sharks, sea otters, penguins, and some of its lesser-known creatures. Ocean Animals for kids by Bethanie Hestermann and Ultimate Oceanopedia by Christina Wilsdon are the other exciting sea creature books for kids. Kids captivated by the beauty of ocean life in these underwater books do not need any further motivation to care for and preserve this fantastic habitat under the blues.
