I truly believe you can do no better for “everything early literacy” than the Hennepin County (Minnesota) Library’s website. Birth to Six

While the whole website is loaded with goodies, check out the left column and click on “Birth to Six” for early literacy resources.

These include:

  • book lists by themes
  • ELSIE (which will search for books for a specific early literacy skill AND give you ideas for using a book with groups)
  • newsletter
  • fingerplays
  • demo videos
  • descriptions of skills
  • reading tips
  • pages in Spanish
  • and much, much more

I’d forgotten what a treasure it is until I was working on book orders for new Storybox Special boxes. I needed book ideas, went to Hennepin, and found what I needed–again!

I hope you do too!
