Technology is increasingly a part of the early childhood classroom.  The purpose of this article is to review current research on electronic books (e-books) and other technology for supporting literacy development in typically developing children, children with special needs or at risk for special needs and children living in lower income families.  Findings suggest high quality e-books and other technology can be used alongside traditional forms of teaching to support children in the early childhood classrooms to increase literacy skills.  There seems to be clear evidence that teacher training is necessary for e-books and other technology to be successful in early childhood classrooms as not all forms of technology are going to be suitable for all children.  Characteristics of quality e-books and how they can be used in the classroom is provided.  Future research designs are also suggested.
