TumbleBooksLibrary is an online collection of TumbleBooks – animated, talking picture books which teach kids the joy of reading in a format they’ll love. TumbleBooks are created by adding animation, sound, music and narration to existing picture books in order to produce an electronic picture book which you can read, or have read to you.
As well as stories and read-alongs, there are also non-fiction books, language learning books and games. TumbleBooks are always available, you don’t check them out, just read them online. You can even create a playlist of favorite books or choose from other playlists already arranged by grade level.
TumbleBooksLibrary is a fantastic resource that is educational, promotes reading and above all is fun for kids.
