ERAC is pleased to announce it has extended its TumbleBookLibrary agreement for the 2012/13 school year! TumbleBookLibrary is an online collection of TumbleBooks – animated, talking picture books that teach students reading skills in a format they enjoy. TumbleBooks are created by adding animation, sound, music and narration to existing picture books in order to produce an electronic picture book users can read or have read to them.
With a variety of high-interest material, the TumbleBookLibrary provides enrichment to students who are reading independently. The library also provides support to students who require skill building, by offering them a variety of exercises that can match other areas of the curriculum. In general, TumbleBooks are a great addition to a reading program; students can use them independently or as a class. ESL and Special Education teachers have been particularly enthusiastic about TumbleBooks.
A Library Tour is available at: http://www.tumblebooks.com/LibraryTour.html
Free Trials are available at: http://www.tumblebooks.com/library/asp/trial_form.asp
