The James V. Brown Library is engaging children in a format they love with the TumbleBooks Library. TumbleBooks Library contains 300 animated talking picture books and 40 chapter books, all accessible through the Internet. The best part, we are teaching the kids the joy of reading and the TumbleBooks Library includes games, puzzles, videos, and much more.
Do you have a child that struggles to read? Has difficulty in sounding out words? Would much rather watch television? Then, James V. Brown has the solution for you. The TumbleBooks Library collection is divided into three groups to fit your child’s needs and reading ability.
The basic collection, TumbleBooks are created by taking existing books, adding animation, sound, music and narration to produce an electronic book which you can read or have read to you. It’s an amazing collection. These books are always available, never on hold, and no need to download. Simply go to the James V. Brown Library’s website at www.jvbrown.edu, click on “Children’s Web Site”, and click on “Watch a Book”.
