It’s June! Here in Alberta, we’re full swing into summer. The temperatures are rising, people are flocking to lakes and beaches, and the days are long with the sun rising early and setting late.
I’ve rounded up some of our favourite picture books to carry us through June and/or the summer months. These books revolve around the themes of summer, the beach, rocks, and the night sky. Today, I thought I would share our list of June picture books with you!
Whether you purchase these books from your local bookstore, or borrow them from the library, I’ve included a handy download at the end of this post for your convenience. Simply print out the list and check each book off as you buy / borrow and read them!

Reading high quality children’s books is a wonderful way to teach your children. Also, if you discover a book that your child enjoys, you could always extend the book by doing some literacy-based planning around the book.
Now that I’ve shared our June picture books list, do you have any favourite books that you’re reading this month? I invite you to tell us all about them!

This is a fantastic list! I am always looking for books for my son that entertain and teach him a valuable life lesson too. Thank you for sharing. There are a lot of books here I haven’t even heard of! I thought I would recommend a book we read recently that fits in this category perfectly called “The Dyno Dinosaur Family Presents: Waves of Kindness” by Sharida McKenzie. The illustrations are beautiful and the Dyno family are a fun and loving group of characters that focus on kindness to all (neighbors, friends, and even planet earth). It is so important that our children know that they can make a difference in this world no matter how small their act of kindness is; something as simple as turning off the water while brushing their teeth! That’s why I love this book so much. It’s not teaching complicated over-the-top concepts. It’s teaching the importance of simple acts of kindness. You can read more about the author and her dyno books here: dinosaurfamily.wordpress.com – really hope you check it out!
Thanks for sharing the recommendation Andrea.
