The TumbleBook Library provides enrichment to students who are reading
independently with a variety of high interest material. It also provides support
to students who require skill building with a variety of exercises that
can be matched with other areas of the curriculum. For everyone else, TumbleBooks
are a great addition to a reading program that can be worked on independently
by each student or by the whole class.

in order to practice story prediction, interpret pictures, discuss new vocabulary
words, empathize with a character, discuss possible consequences of actions, encourage
problem solving, or provide historical, geographical, or other perspective.
