Tumblebooks - now available at EES

Great News!  The Learning Center has recently subscribed to another wonderful database: TumbleBooks!

The TumbleBookLibrary is a collection of TumbleBooks (animated, talking picturebooks) 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 booksTumble Puzzles & Games, and TumbleResources for teachers and students. TumbleBooks are created from existing picture books which are licensed from children's book publishers and converted to the TumbleBookformat.

You can also access Tumblebooks via any reading/mobile device that has an internet connection (for example: color nook, kindle fire, Ipads & Ipod touch users); the site should automatically redirect you to “TumbleBookLibrary: For iPads and Mobile Devices”. If not, please click on the drop down menu at the top right corner and choose “Mobile” then “Go”.

Tumblebooks require the latest Flash plugin (8.x or later). You can get it here: 

Fans of Robert Munsch will be glad to discover that TumbleBooks has available many of his titles in both English and Spanish. 

More favorites are Doreen Cronin's trilogy of titles : Diary of a Fly; Diary of a Spider, and Diary of a Worm.
