Tumble Books are digital, animated, talking picture books. Tumble Books create electronic picture books using existing picture books and adding narration, sound, music and animation. These books come in a variety reading levels that children can read along with the computer, listen to as the computer reads, or read independently. A subscription to Tumble Books provides twelve months of unlimited access to the Tumble Books website. A link to Tumble Books can be placed on both schools’ websites giving the students, teachers, and families of Meetinghouse and Westminster Elementary Schools unlimited access to the Tumble Book website. The stories, games, puzzles, and lesson plans, can be viewed on any computer with internet access, iPad, iPhone, or Android phone. Tumble Books would allow students to practice reading skills using high quality literature, reread stories used during class time, and extend learning through writing in the digital format that they enjoy. This additional practice will not only improve each student’s reading performance it will enhance each child’s love for reading.
