My Favorite Things: Top 5 Early Literacy Sites

Today is all about my favorite early literacy websites! These are sites I check on a regular basis to make sure I'm staying up to date on early literacy and child development. These are also the sites that I refer caregivers to when they are looking for more information. 

5. The Center for Early Literacy Learning
This is a site that is great for basic information about literacy, as well as research based results. Some of their link compilations haven't been updated in a few years, but they are still full of great information. I'd check this site out when you are looking for a more in-depth research about early literacy. 

4. Reading is Fundamental

This is a great site for all kinds of literacy information. The "Worth a Read" section is usually where I start on this site. It's a news feed for all the latest literacy information. 

3. Growing Wisconsin Readers

This is our state's early literacy initiative that is near and dear to my heart. It is all about getting information into the hand of people who need it the most. They have a great blog to follow, as well as a great section for librarians. 

2. Zero to Three

This website has so much information! I can literally spend hours on here. Check here if you're looking for more developmental information, information to share with your caregivers, 

1. Reading Rockets

This website has everything you could ever need. There is information about early literacy, but there's also a ton of information about literacy for all ages. They have book lists, information about struggling readers, great videos showing literacy in action, and so much more!


  1. I know this is not the kind of resource you are reviewing here, but another unbeatable asset for early childhood folks is the free online library of picture books, narrated in up to 30 languages, just for babies through primary kids. That collection of concept and language development books can be found at That means that the 61% of American parents, teachers and care-givers who have smartphones are carrying 150 picture books in their pocket at all times. Reading with your kids, no matter where you find yourself, is just a tap away.

    1. This is a great resource! Thank you so much for sharing Mark. I will make sure to share this.
