Education - Early Childhood Education

A starting place to help you find classroom resources for preschool and primary grade learning environments.

Children's Literature Comprehensive Database

The Children's Literature Comprehensive Database is a fantastic place to search for children's literature by reading level, category, or genre.  UVic Libraries doesn't have every book included in the database, but we do have a lot.  Once you find some books in CLCD, then search by title in the UVic catalogue.

Storybooks Canada is "a free open educational resource that promotes literacy and language learning in homes, schools and communities."  

Indigenous Storybooks is an open educational resource making levelled-texts available in Indigenous languages.

Picture books & early readers

Whether you are looking for big books, early readers, or picture books, UVic Libraries has a wide-selection available. The subdivided pages in this section have some of our favourites for our youngest learners.

Many thanks to former Curriculum Library Educator, Carol Nahachewsky, for curating much of the content on this list.
