Read-along books are great for early or shy readers. This collection for grades 3-8 features over 120 read-along books including classics and even Shakespeare.
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.
