The Portsmouth Public Library offers the TumbleBook Library for use by our library patrons. This library is a collection of TumbleBooks – animated, talking picture books – suited for elementary school children. TumbleBooks are created from existing picture books, adding sound, animation, music and narration to create an electronic picture book. These electronic books are a literacy resource that keeps children interested and involved in reading and are great for children learning to read. The interactive web site keeps children engaged and contributes to success in school while helping to instill a love of reading.
The TumbleBook Library collection can be accessed online from every computer in our local public library with an Internet connection, or from home through the link below. The TumbleBook Library includes a wide selection of stories that come to life for children through engaging animation. The web site is easy for children to navigate and allows children to hear stories read fluently. There are even options to hear the stories in French or Spanish. Each story comes with puzzles and games geared to ensure reading comprehension.
