World Book Early Learning

Early Learning Introduction Video

Early Learning by World Book is an immersive early childhood digital resource for young learners eager to explore information about the world around them. The device agnostic site features content organized by topic of interest and relevance to these young learners, from Dinosaurs to Tough Trucks and includes 12 stories in Spanish as well as English. Short bursts of content supports micro-learning, and read-aloud with word-by-word highlighting makes the content accessible to all children as they learn their colors, numbers, and more while having fun. Classic songs, nursery rhymes, and fairy tales complete the program, and are often included in the lesson plans and other educational materials available in the For Grownups section for educators.

MARC records for all World Book Online products are available from the MARC records page on the World Book Training Guide. Click to add MARC records to your collection. Please note that this download includes both a record of the online resource itself as well as records for the individual stories. Records must be edited to reflect the sub-account number in the base URL of each 856 field.


Each library has a specific URL for statistical purposes. At the end of the URL is subacct= and you will need to find your subacct number here: Early Learning sub accounts.  Full URLs for Early Learning accounts are provided in the PDF. Below is an example of how the URL is constructed.
