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.
