What is special about TumbleBooks is that they are 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. TumbleBooks also offers standard eBooks and eAudibooks for adults and teens. All of the TumbleBook collections can be borrowed from our library by clicking on the links below to take you to their website. Or you can download their app from your app store. Note: If you use the app, you will need to input the number on your JKPL library card for access.
