Reading Should Be Fun #edtech

And Tumblebooks at the Portland Public Library makes reading fun again!  Full of fantastic books that are read aloud to students online (including some on the IPAD).  Tumblebooks includes StoryBooks (with images for younger viewers), Language Learning Books, Read-Along, Non-Fiction and all the books have a fantastic narrator to read the story as the text is highlighted.  When the book is done there are games that enhance learning through reading comprehension quizzes, word search and catch, memory games and puzzles all related to the stories on Tumblebooks.  Favorite the books you like most and create playlists.  I love reading to my kids, but sometimes there just isn't time and they love books.  Tumblebooks is a great alternative (and sometimes even better) than the real thing!
