Preschool and Kindergarten Books About Biomes and Animals

God made the earth with a wide variety of environments, called biomes. Hot and cold, wet and dry, steep and flat, with trees and without.  Our curated book recommendations guide your little learner to explore the 5 major types of biomes and meet some of the inhabitants of each one. Your child will soon see how wise God was in creating the perfect homes in which each of His unique creatures could thrive.

The aim of each of our handpicked reading lists is to enliven learning time and showcase God's nature through creation. These are a few of our favorite books about animal and plant homes for preschoolers and kindergarteners.

The Wondrous Workings of Planet Earth is easily a library staple that little learners will glean from year after year.
