School Vacation Week!

Happy Valentine's Day, and Happy School Vacation Week!

Kids bored already? Take a look at TumbleBooks (just click on the word)!

The TumbleBook Library is an online collection of animated, talking picture books which teach kids the joy of reading in a format they'll love. TumbleBooks are created by taking existing picture books, adding animation, sound, music and narration to produce an electronic picture book which you can read, or have read to you.
(Requires the Flash plug-in to view and hear the animation.)

For older kids, take a look at TumbleReadables (just click on the word)!  TumbleReadables is an online collection of read-along titles for elementary, middle school, and high school students which features adjustable online test and complete audio narration. Sentences are highlighted as they are being read and the pages turn automatically. The collection features chapter books, early readers, YA.Teen novels, high interest/low level books for both middle school and high school students, plus classics of American and English literature.
