 TumbleBook Library Reading Tips:
Select a Story Book.
Click on “View Online” button.

When the TumbleBook has downloaded, choose either;
Automatic mode –the story book is narrated and the pages will turn by themselves.
Manual mode –the story book narration is turned off so you read the story book at your own pace, and you get to turn the pages.
The Pause Button will stop the story at any time. A reader may practice narrative skills, letter knowledge, interpret illustrations, learn new vocabulary words, and more.
TumblePad Word Helper allows a reader to click on a sentence in a story book to hear the sentence repeated, or click on a vocabulary word to hear the word sounded out.
Look for this symbol- Word Helper works best in manual mode.
Flash Plug-In required. TumbleBooks is created in Flash animation and require a Flash plug-in to view and hear the animation. Many computers today already are equipped with Flash. In you are not able to view the books, please download the Flash Plug-in for FREE Download Flash
