Free interactive ebooks for kids

Have you tried Tumblebooks yet? You can get your hands of a large collection of free interactive ebooks through your library membership. The collection is best for young and learner readers and contains many well-known picture book and junior chapter book titles (even some non-fiction too!). The books are animated with pictures and sounds, and you even have the option of reading the book yourself, or having it read to you.  As well as English, there are titles in French, Spanish, Chinese, Russian, Korean and German, which is perfect for those that are learning another language.

Prefer comics? Tumblebooks has those too! Geronimo Stilton, Archie, Nancy Drew, Max Finder Mysteries and more.

It gets better – there are interesting National Geographic videos to watch, and puzzles and games you can play. Tumblebooks has everything to keep you entertained for hours!

    Hi Beth! You can find TumbleBooks here: http://www.wcl.govt.nz/mygateway/kids.html Scroll down the page until you see the heading TumbleBooks, then click on the blue link ‘Find a book to read’. You can read the books and do the fun activities and games straight through the website – you don’t have to borrow or download them. (Also, even though it says that they are books for pre-schoolers, there are actually heaps of older books and comics in there too.) Have fun!
