DID YOU KNOW … Your neighborhood Bienville Parish Library has access to the TUMBLE BOOKS LIBRARY! The Tumble Books Library is an online collection of animated talking picture books, which teach kids the joy of reading in a format they love. Tumble Books are created by taking existing picture books, adding animation, sound, music, and narration to produce an electronic picture book which children can read, or have read to them. Each story comes with puzzles and games geared to ensure reading comprehension.
Now older students or more accomplished readers can read the collection of read-along chapter books. Read-along titles feature narration, sentence highlighting, and automatic page turning.
The Tumble Books Library features a growing selection of books in Spanish and French. The language drop down menu allows users to view the entire website in Spanish or French. Instructions, news and descriptions of books are all in Spanish or French. Helpful for ESL, Bilingual, and French and Spanish programs.
As with both TEEN TUMBLE CLOUD and the TUMBLE BOOKS LIBRARY, there are sections with word counts, grade reading levels, AR points, and instructor/homeschool lesson plans, and interactive fun quizzes on the books or videos to help children with comprehension and retention.
