It’s Read Across America Day and Tumblebooks makes it easy to take part
Today, March 2nd, is Read Across America Day, and we’re celebrating with schools and families by bringing you a great resource from the Horry County Memorial Library. Kim Cantley from the Horry County Memorial Library took a moment to explain Tumblebooks and why it may be beneficial for teachers and families across our county.
“TumbleBooks are created by taking existing picture books, adding animation, sound, music and narration to create an electronic picture book that you can read, or have read to you,” explains Kim.
Users can access the books with their Horry County Library card.
To download Tumblebooks, go to your App Store or Google Play Store.
Once you download the app, you will choose the library option and login using the number on your library card.
To access books with animation and narration, go to the dropdown menu at the top and choose story books. From there you’ll choose a book based on topic or author. Click on the book and press play to start.
This site is great for little ones that like the animated picture books, but there are also ebooks and novels for older readers.
Children can also access educational videos and games within the Tumblebooks app.
Go to National Geographic videos or puzzles and games within the app to access all the content Tumblebooks has to offer.
Parents and teachers will love the games because they’re fun for kids, but also increase students’ comprehension. You can browse through a selection of memory games, pictures games, sentence games and more.
