(e-books for kids)


TumbleBooks are animated, talking picture books which teach kids the joy of reading in a format they'll love. They are created by taking existing picture books, adding animation, sounds, music and narration to produce an electronic picture book (and some classics) which you can read, or have read to you.

The language drop-down menu allows you to view the site in French and Spanish, instead of English.

(formerly TumbleReadables)

Read-along books are great for early or shy readers. This collection features over 120 read-along books for children, middle schoolers, teens, and adults including classics and even Shakespeare.

The books highlight sentences as you read, turn the page automatically, and offer three different text sizes.
