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.

Read-along books are great for early or shy readers. This collection features read-along books for children.

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

Note: TumbleBooks and TumbleQuizzes use Flash animation and require the Flash plug-in to view and hear the animation. If you are unable to view the books, download the free Flash plug-in at
