TumbleBooks are used as a valuable learning tool in teaching young children to read and helping older children and high school students maintain their enjoyment of reading. TumbleBooks are animated story books with sound effects, music and narration, available in both fiction and non-fiction.
TumbleBooks offers different levels of books for readers from kindergarten through 12th grade. The TumbleBookLibrary is best suited for young elementary school children who are just learning to read. The narrated and animated storybooks allow children to follow along as they learn to read. TumbleBookCloud Junior is the next level up and is geared towards older elementary school children. This section offers ebooks, graphic novels, educational videos and audio books for students whose reading abilities have developed beyond the TumbleBookLibrary. The TumbleBookCloud contains similar types of content to the junior version, but is designed for middle school and high school students.
All of the TumbleBooks collections are accessible at any time through the website, and all data is streamed so there is no need to take up valuable hard drive space. Once a school has purchased a subscription to TumbleBooks, they are able to access the books from any computer at the school. Teachers can also send parents a link to the site, so they can access the books with their children at home as well.
