About TumbleReadables:

TumbleReadables is a collection of online read-along titles in categories such as Graphic Novels, Early Readers, Chapter Books, Teen Fiction, Classics, and Drama/Poetry.

The Read-Alongs highlight the sentences as they are narrated aloud, turn the page automatically, and offer the ability to customize your screen by changing the font size and screen/text colour, to name just a few options.

Read-Alongs are great for emergent, struggling, and reluctant readers, and are an excellent tool for ESL students. With a fun, stylish interface, Read-Alongs will also appeal to accomplished readers who are excited to follow along to the narration of their favorite books.

About the TumbleBookLibrary:

The TumbleBookLibrary is a collection of TumbleBooks (animated, talking picture books) with fiction, non-fiction and foreign language titles, Read-Alongs (chapter books with sentence highlighting and narration but no animation), TumbleTV which consists of pre-set playlists of a sequence of books, and Tumble Puzzles & Games.

TumbleBooks are created from existing picture books which we have licensed from children's book publishers and converted to the TumbleBook format.
