JillE Literacy was created by educator, author, and international literacy consultant Jill Eggleton, QSO.
Since her earliest days as a classroom teacher in New Zealand, Jill has known that there is no room for struggle, pain, or boredom in reading. Instead, it has been Jill’s lifelong passion to engage young learners with texts that spark emotion, imagination, critical thinking, curiosity, and creativity. This is the passion that drives JillE Literacy.
Jill’s approach incorporates all aspects of literacy learning, a diverse range of materials and approaches, a focus on the developmental stage of each individual learner, and, of utmost importance, an emphasis on sparking children’s interest and getting them “hooked” on reading.
A former classroom teacher herself, Jill also understands the challenges teachers face. No one has a more challenging or more important job than teachers do. All of the resources Jill creates are mindful of these challenges, providing teachers with built-in tools that help them make the most of their precious time with students. As the author of more than 1,000 resources for teachers and students, including the Sails, Key Links Literacy, Connectors, Bud-e Reading, and JillE Literacy series, Jill supports teachers with resources that make teaching literacy easy, engaging, and effective.
As adjunct professor at Sioux Falls University, Jill trains and inspires educators in how to apply the best in literacy practices in the classroom. She has worked with teachers in many countries to help them create classrooms where students are motivated and excited to learn, and where teachers enjoy the teaching process and the rewards that result when their students are happy and engaged.
In 2010, Jill received one of New Zealand’s highest honors when she was appointed Companion of the Queen’s Service Order (QSO) for services to education and literacy. In 2015, she received the Margaret Mahy Award, a literary prize presented annually to a person who has made a significant contribution to children’s literature, publishing, or literacy.
Jill Eggleton created JillE Literacy to provide vibrant and engaging materials designed to inspire young readers, along with built-in guidance for teaching essential skills in context and supporting all children’s literacy development. It is her sincere hope that JillE Literacy will help teachers fan the flame of literacy in their classrooms and empower students with the gift of lifelong reading.
This school year, let JillE Literacy help you change “back to normal” to “back to better” with fast solutions for catching up skills and getting students hooked on reading.

JillE Literacy was created by educator, author, and international literacy consultant Jill Eggleton, QSO. Since her earliest days as a classroom teacher in New Zealand, Jill has known that there is no room for struggle, pain, or boredom in reading.
Teachers need books that work as hard as they do. Today’s teachers have more demands on their time than ever. JillE Literacy lets teachers spend less time planning and more time teaching.
Engagement is key. There is no room for struggle, pain, or boredom in reading. To engage young readers, teachers need books and poems that spark emotion, imagination, critical thinking, curiosity, and creativity.
Foundational literacy skills need to be explicitly and systematically taught. You cannot read if you can’t decode accurately. However, you cannot learn to read by just learning to decode. JillE Literacy embeds explicit instruction and repeated practice in foundational literacy skills throughout every text, uniquely using highly engaging books and poems rather than the usual dull, decodable texts.
