All About Animals Picture Book List for Primary Kids

Almost all kids love animals. It just seems to be a given fact. From friendly cats and dogs to fish in the aquarium to the bigger, fiercer animals at the zoo- kids just seem to love animals.

If you’re looking to do an animal unit study, preparing for a trip to the zoo, or just looking for some fun animal-themed books to share with the kids, this booklist can get you started. These picture books are fun for primary aged kids (K-2nd grade). I’ve also listed a roundup of sites with animal-themed resources for young kids.
