TumbleBooks have animated talking books, read-alongs, programmed playlists (organized by grade or reading level), games and more. The books are created by adding animation, sound, music and narration to existing picture books in order to produce an electronic picture book which you can read, or have read to you. Books can be read online or downloaded! Many items made for iPad.

Puppet Show

Vernon Littlefield lived quite contentedly in his snug little mouse hole out in the country, that is, until one day his cousin from the city arrived and convinced him that his meals were too plain and small, and his home was tiny and unfit. Vernon had always thought of it as rather cozy.

“No matter,” said Greyton A. Rodent,“come with me to town where we can dine in style.” Indeed the food was excellent, and the rooms were lovely. However, a big cat stood constant guard there, and Vernon Littlefield longed for home.

Register!
