One of our favorite things to do at the beginning of each season is to refresh our bookshelf with seasonal books for our children to read. Today we are sharing some favorite books about the sea that would also be perfect to read ahead of a beach vacation or to gift to a birthday boy or girl this summer. And if you’re still thinking of joining our children’s book club, these books will give you a little taste of what’s in store this summer!
Favorite Fiction Beach Books
From a darling story about a family that lives in a lighthouses to one of our favorite Eric Carle books, we think you’ll find something in our selection of fiction books below that every family member will enjoy. Several of these titles are selections from past years’ Classic Children’s Book Clubs, so you can get a taste of the types of quality books we choose and recommend.
Favorite Non-Fiction Beach Books
Encourage curiosity throughout the summer with non-fiction books. We’ve shared some ocean-themed ones below but Gail Gibbons has so many wonderful books about different animals and plants. And this Ocean Anatomy book is great for older children. If you know a child that loves the sea this book as so much information.
