TumbleBook Library

TumbleBook Library is an online collection of electronic children's books you can access through a link on the library website.

TumbleBooks are created by taking existing picture books, adding animation, sound, music and narration to produce an electronic picture book which you can read, or have read to you.  The library also includes chapter books and YA novels in audio book and e-book formats, multi-cultural topics, foreign language and bilingual books, puzzles, and games.

Among the Story Books, you can find old favorites, such as The Paper Bag Princess by Robert Munch, as well as newer titles like Diary of a Worm by Doreen Cronin. Older students can read from a growing collection of children's classics like Black Beauty, Alice in Wonderland and Anne of Green Gables. The TumbleReadable format allows the reader to adjust to the text size which is right for them, making reading online fun and accessible.

Audio books are full length, unabridged, streaming audio books. In addition to the foreign language books, you can choose from a language drop down menu and view the entire website in Spanish or French. Spelling, concentration, and fill-in-the-blank games developed to reinforce concepts from the books and puzzles using illustrations from the books are also available.
