Dive into these coconut books with your class. Reading has got to be up there on your list of summer activities for preschoolers. We’ve been having a little too much fun with coconuts recently. While the kiddos don’t seem to enjoy the taste like I do, they love all of our coconut activities. In keeping with our coconutty fun, I thought a list of coconut books would be in order.

A Coconut Named Bob by Austin Weaver
A little boy has a coconut named, you guessed it, Bob. He takes Bob everywhere with him, but Bob’s lost on a boat trip. The rest of the tale is told from Bob’s point of view, as he journeys in the ocean and finds an island to live on.
Coconut Kind of Day by Lynn Joseph
Lovely story about a little girl in Trinidad going about her day – which includes visiting the coconut man.
The Three Monkey Brothers by Dani Silverman
The monkey brothers roam around the jungle looking for coconuts for their mama. Along the way, they come across a variety of animals and adventures.
Daisy and the Trouble with Coconuts by Kes Gray
Daisy’s excited to go to the fair, and she has her sights set on winning a coconut. Her excitement distracts her during school and causes lots of problems along the way. This is part of a series of chapter books all about a little girl named Daisy.
Counting Coconuts by Wendy Silvano
Monkey wants to count his large collection of coconuts. His animal buddies offer up different ways to count the coconuts – by twos, by threes, etc. Great explanation about skip-counting!
Coconut Jack by Jill Lewis
Jack’s supposed to create part of a jungle scene for his school. He makes a coconut out of clay and decides he’s done. His family decides to get in on the fun, too, but they hit a snag when a burst pipe threatens their palm tree.
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin, Jr.
The famous book about those silly letters going up, and falling down, the coconut tree. This one’s always a hit with my students!
