Tumble Book Library


TumbleBooks are animated, talking picture books for elementary school-aged children. TumbleBooks are created from existing picture books, adding sound, animation, music and narration to create an electronic picture book.  The web site is easy for children to navigate and allows children to hear stories read fluently. There are even options to hear the stories in French or Spanish. Each story comes with puzzles and games geared to ensure reading comprehension.


Note: We apologize but expect access to Tumblebooks and Tumblebook Cloud to end sometime in October 2017.
