Favourite living books about fish/whales/other swimming creatures


Recommended Posts

I am wondering if anyone has any favourite living book suggestions (fiction or non) related to fish/whales/swimming creatures (salt or freshwater). I am looking to supplement our studies year! Suggestion for any age range is fine as I will have K4-Gr. 8 doing this study next year.


Thanks :001_smile:

We just recently watched Dolphin Tale (the movie) and my younger dd read every book on this subject I think we had. :001_smile:


She loved One Tiny Turtle too. She is a hugh animal lover.


Here are a few we own:

Animals of Sea and Shore by Illa Podendorf

Dolphin's First Day: The Story of the Bottlenose Dolphin by Kathleen Weidner Zoehfeld

Manatee Winter by the same author as above

Orca Song by Michael C. Armour

Turtle Bay by Saviour Pirotta

These are wonderful but probably more for littles.


Burt Dow, Deep Water Man



The Underwater Alphabet Book by Palotta

Science Nature Guides Freshwater Life

Elephants on the Beach by Brady


I know we have others but this is all that I can think of for now.

This is an old book and hard to get your hands on, but it was one of my favorites as a child: The Whales Go By by Fred Phleger. From a quick search on amazon, it looks like the author wrote several other books about marine life that might be worth looking into.
