Welcome to TumbleBook Library, a curated database of “ebooks for ekids.” This link will enable you to use TumbleBook Library’s extensive collection of animated, talking picture books, read-along chapter books, nonfiction books, graphic novels, and books in Spanish and French. All that is needed is a computer with an internet connection and a Galesburg Public Library card.
Children may use the service by themselves or with a parent, caretaker, reading tutor or teacher. An entire classroom can even log onto the library’s website to read the same book at the same time. Teachers may project a TumbleBook and let the entire class enjoy a story together!
Books may be read in either manual or automatic mode. In automatic mode, the page turn themselves and are narrated. In manual mode, the narration is turned off and the reader turns the pages. There is also a “Pause” button that allows the reader, tutor or teacher to stop the story to practice story prediction, vocabulary, character development and other skills.
Tumblebooks Library is easy to use, and with no checkout times or wait-lists you’re always guaranteed something to read. Help teach kids the joy of reading in a format they’ll love.
