Online Summer Resources for the Kids

We’ve been reminding you about downloadable audiobooks for your summer road trips, but we don’t want to neglect your kids.

We’ve got two excellent resources you shouldn’t miss:  Tumble Books, and Tumblereadables.  Both of them stream from the Internet, so a connection is necessary.   Click on the logo below to check it out!

 

TumbleBooks can keep the kids entertained educationally for hours.  It features read-aloud stories, ebooks, and audiobooks to use online.  It has language learning activities, books in French, Spanish, Italian, Chinese, and Russian, plus word, memory, and spelling games and puzzles.

 

  Tumblereadables features chapter books, early readers, graphic novels, YA/teen novels, and ‘relunctant reader’ books for both middle school and high school students, plus classics of American and English literature.  Some titles are also en Espanol.  No download is necessary and you can just bookmark your place if you can’t finish in one sitting. It works on Android tablets and most mobile devices.

Here’s to a fun, peaceful, educational summer for your kids!
