Tumblebooks LibraryThe TumbleBookLibrary is a collection of TumbleBooks (animated, talking picture books) 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 books, Tumble Puzzles & Games, and TumbleResources for teachers and students.

We also have National Geographic videos which we’ve paired with many of our non-fiction titles – perfect support for the Common Core Curriculum!

TumbleBooks are created from existing picture books which we have licensed from children’s book publishers and converted to the TumbleBook format.

Bookflix is still available but you now need to go to POWER Library to access it.
