TumbleBooks-Stories for Kids Online

By now, you know that I love a good online story. If your child is going to be on the computer, or on the Internet, there's no reason why they shouldn't be reading and learning, not to mention having fun doing it!

That's why I wanted to tell you all about TumbleBooks! TumbleBooks is an online library where kids can select a book to "read" and it is read to them in an animated format. There are six options to narrow down what kind of book you would like to read: Story Books, Read-Alongs, TumbleTV, Puzzles and Games, Language Learning, and Non-Fiction Books. The site also includes the grade level, the Lexile number, as well as the Accelerated Reader level for the individual books, should those things be inportant to you, or your child's teacher.

Your child can also take a quiz on the book, play a book based game, create a book report with the book report creator, or as parents and teachers you can view lesson plans surrounding the book. The lesson plan feature is an invaluble tool for homeschooling!

But don't take my word for all of these great features! Go explore TumbleBooks!
