Here are some resources that we have found particularly helpful:

Teaching Reading and Writing:

Reading Rockets Celebrates 10 Years of Launching Young ReadersReading Rockets:  
Reading Rockets is a national multimedia literacy initiative offering information and resources on how young kids learn to read, why so many struggle, and how caring adults can help.
We bring the best research-based strategies to teachers, parents, administrators, librarians, childcare providers, and anyone else involved in helping a young child become a strong, confident reader. Our goal is to bring the reading research to life — to spread the word about reading instruction and to present "what works" in a way that parents and educators can understand and use.
Book Lists:
These are lists of picture books around particular subjects:

Science Picture Books for Kids 5 books in 11 different science categories from the blog What Do We Do All Day.

Women's History Month:  Books that celebrate strong girls and wonderful women from Reading Rockets.

List of suggested books on diversities for elementary schools from Diversity Roll Models


  1. Reading Rockets is an outstanding resource for administrators, teachers, and parents.

    LOVE Reading Rockets.

    You may also want to look at KIDLIT CELEBRATES WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH, a community founded by librarians in 2011. It's a fabulous place to dwell in, all year long.
