30+ Planet Earth Books for Homeschool Preschool Unit Study

We loved learning from our Planet Earth Books during our unit study and there were so many different topics to dive into, covering topics like; Weather, the water cycle, and the rock cycle. the layers of the earth, geographic features, the natural wonders to biomes, and different habitats! The Earth is such a massive topic that we could have studied it for weeks longer than we did!

Planet Earth Books proved a little tricky to find…

There are PLENTY of books that talk about planet earth…if you’re talking about Earth day and protecting the earth. That wasn’t what I was after this time around and I found it difficult to find fiction/picture books that just focused on the natural world. So if you have any recommendations leave them down below!!!

General Books about our Planet Earth for Preschoolers

Some of the planet earth books listed below are above a preschool level but I found them very helpful and you can always pick and choose how much to read and what to leave out or how to summarize.

Usborne Books About the Planet Earth

I wanted to give a special shout-out to Usborne Books and More, they carry some truly stunning and informational books that we love using for homeschool. They are my favorite for presenting lots of information in a way that is easy for littles to understand and all the flaps don’t hurt either!

Also, I am an Usborne consultant and If you choose to purchase anything through one of my links below know that I will make a small commission at NO cost to you and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for choosing to help support my family!

Biomes and Ecosystem Books

This was my favorite topic to talk about but I STRUGGLED to find many planet earth books that covered more than one biome. If you’re okay with lots of separate books then The About Habitats line is a great option!

Water Cycle and Weather Books

I actually wasn’t planning on covering the water cycle much with our planet Earth unit study this time around, but after looking into lesson ideas more it was just too connected and water is kinda a big deal on Planet Earth. ;p
