Whale books for kids and fun whale themed ideas!
I’ve always found the Whale fascinating. They are huge creatures and I love to read stories to children about whales. In fact one of my favourite books is The Snail and the Whale.
Today I am sharing a list of Whale books for kids to enjoy. These wonderful whale themed story books are fun and interesting and can be great to read at mat time or in the home.
You might even want to read these children’s whale books as you study the ocean theme in the classroom or as a way to teach about sea creatures.
There are so many fun Ocean crafts to go alongside children’s Whale books and I’ll share a few at the end of the post. Enjoy!

Whales have two ways in which they sleep. The first way of sleeping is by rest quietly in the water, this can be two ways, vertical or horizontal. Whales may also sleep while they are swimming next to another animal.text
