8 Shark Board Books Perfect For Toddlers

8 Shark Board Books Perfect For Toddlers

I have loved sharks ever since I was a little girl. There is just something about them that has always fascinated me. I was so excited when the time finally came to really start introducing my son to animals. Of course, like every kid on the planet, all he cared about was farm animals first. We slowly moved to zoo animals (he’s obsessed with monkeys), and now finalllyyyyy he is loving learning about ocean life!

The books below are how I sparked his interest. They aren’t super informative, they are mainly just fun. I am working on a blog post with Shark Children’s Books and that’s where you’ll see more non-fiction books!

I hope you enjoy our list of favorite shark board books along with our current wish list! Happy Reading!
