TumbleBooks: Found on DCL’s “Downloadables” page, TumbleBooks is a database of streaming children’s books and learning activities. It features titles in a variety of reading levels, with read-a-long options and related games and puzzles. The TumbleBooks database can be used over the Internet and might be useful for parents and teachers looking to help children build reading skills. Since these titles and activities are streamed from the database, they cannot be downloaded or played without the Internet. TumbleBooks are created using “flash animation,” which gives them some interactive capabilities and enhances the user experience.
Take 10-15 minutes to play around with TumbleBooks, then:
1) Watch the TumbleTour and leave a comment with your two favorite features of TumbleBooks.
2) Present a TumbleBook as a flash talk to your co-workers.
