I love how easy Tumblebooks is to use. Also how it engages reluctant and struggling readers!

Greta, Library Director
Leach Public Library, ND

We love TumbleBooks because:

  • The variety of content, both format and genre
  • Easy to use interface
  • Engaging animations
  • Highlighting words to help new readers
Our patrons love to use TumbleBooks in the library and at home.
Jill, Youth Services Librarian
San Rafael Public Library, CA

We love Tumblebooks because the kids love it! More kids read Tumblebooks than download e-books from our other downloadable service, because of the animation, games, easy access (no e-reader required), and unlimited fun.

Keokuk Public Library, IA

TumbleBooks is a wonderful way to get children excited about reading. The moving pictures keep their focus on the story. We have used TumbleBooks to help teachers in our community better serve their students. TumbleBooks is a great tool to assist in reading comprehension with students who speak English as a second language or have special needs.

Evelyn, Head of Youth and Teen Services
Sycamore Public Library, IL

TumbleBooks is awesome! Our school is very involved in the Accelerated Reader program and many times our students forget their books at home. With the help of TumbleBooks, students can access books to read from their very own home even if they did forget their book! Our teachers enjoy access to TumbleBooks as well and use it in the classroom on a daily basis. Students can all read the same book at the same time and discuss it as a class. We love TumbleBooks!

Thank you for this wonderful resource. I use this site with all of my students from PK-5th grade. I enjoy the clear and distinct graphics that accompany the stories along with the great dialogue. The expressions of the reader for the stories enable the students to learn how to add expression in their own reading.

It is a wonderful tool to reach those visual learners and audio learners in a format that is so captivating. Also, it gives the students a chance to hear a voice other than mine. The story I use the most is 50 Degrees Below.

Library Media Specialist

I like EVERYTHING about this site! I am a school librarian and always looking for different ways to bring stories to my students. There so many options to choose from at Tumblebooks! Thank you for the free trial.

School Librarian

I am tremendously impressed. Our patrons are wildly enthusiastic about Tumblebooks. In less than a month, over 250 patrons have access the site and shared with us just how much they love it. Families love the delightful renditions of the books. We all agree that Tumblebooks is a great way to motivate young people to read and experience the magic of literature. I especially like the option of having books in English, Spanish, or French. You have a nice blend of classics as well as newer titles, and I hope you will continue that trend, as patrons like the variety. Another plus is how helpful you and your colleagues always are when I have questions.

Youth Librarian

Tumblebooks is a very clever way to share a book with a child. We especially enjoyed the animation that made the book come alive.


I loved the site. The kids really enjoyed being able to see the pictures as well as hear the words as opposed to my reading to them and showing them the pictures afterwards.

Our school just paid for a 2 year subscription, and our teachers are using it like crazy. It's already paid for itself in less than a month by all the usage we've made of it.

It's a great asset to any beginning literacy program and so much more!

The books are great, well narrated and artfully illustrated. The program is especially beneficial if you arer using a smart board in the classroom, as I do in my K-5 library.

Tumblebooks has caused great excitement at Parkway Elementary! The teachers are using this tool in their classrooms daily and students love the stories. We have even been using the stories in reading stations with our new iPads! Tumblebooks is a great resource for spreading the joy of reading!

Southside Elementary students love to ignite their imagination with Tumblebooks :) We love the new National Geographic videos and all the non-fiction books! Keep on adding non-fiction!

Melissa, Media Specialist

Tumblebooks has been a great addition to our school library. It allows for multiple access by teachers. Students and their parents can view it from their homes. Tumblebooks has many features that can enhance the learning experience of all students. It is well worth the money!

Thelma, Librarian
Socorro Independent School District, TX

We have had TumbleBooks for several years here at the Dunedin Public Library. Not only have we used it in our story times, we also promote TumbleBooks with signs and banners in our Youth Services Department. We recently had a collaboration with a local elementary school's media specialist to incorporate TumbleBooks into a Library Bingo game we gave to their students. When the children came into the library, one of the Bingo squares was "learn about an esource at the Dunedin Public Library." What esource do I always introduce to children? TumbleBooks! I utilize TumbleBooks not only professionally, but personally - TumbleBooks is a favorite with my granddaughter, Ruby!

Olivia, MLIS, Head of Youth Services

I LOVE TUMBLEBOOKS! My school loves Tumblebooks!!! Our students are avid readers and Accelerated Reader participants so Tumblebooks is really a great tool for them to enhance their reading and earn AR points for which they are rewarded. The ease of access with the online database is incredible. Students with varied levels of reading are able to get online, read a book and take an Accelerated Reader test and help their class reach their reading goal...quickly and easily!!! Many of the ESL students like to listen to the same stories over and over and this is a very good tool for language acquisition!!! Tumblebooks is awesome. We have the subscription through our district and hope that it will continue every year!!!

Tumblebooks allows our students access to a variety of eBooks at a GREAT price!

I really enjoyed using tumblebooks. I do not have any complaints. It was easy to use and the students loved the variety of “watching” the story we were sharing.

Library Media Specialist

The website is very easy to manuveur. I like the books that are available.

I like the variety of age levels it appeals to as well as the myriad of ways the student can engage with the books! My students love books online and this is a great way for me to give this to them!

I really enjoyed evaluating the Tumblebooks. They are really great! They are a good source for the students who sometimes struggle with reading. Thanks for the demo!

The students at my school were very excited to watch and read books on Tumble Books. They enjoyed the pictures and sound effects that the books had. They loved doing the Tumble quizzes at the end of the books. It worked well with students who had difficulty reading independantly as well.

Janice, Teacher-Librarian

Student engagement is spectacular, and that is difficult with my school population.

Kristin, Library Media Specialist

I love tumble books for a variety of reasons: it allows children to read, it can be used by anyone in the school (or kids at home), it encourages comprehension by asking questions afterwards, it makes learning fun by including games, it is on the internet which kids like, it is easy to use for even Kindergarten kids!

Several teachers worked with the site and they loved every part of it!!!! Hopefully, next year we will all have data projectors, because there is such wonderful activities, that the teachers want it to be presented in a "BIG" way.
