It’s no secret that reading success comes from being read to from an early age. Although nothing compares to sharing a book with your student during a read aloud, tumblebooks is an excellent resource for emerging readers to enjoy a book that is above their reading level. Tumblebooks has a large collection of books that children can choose from, and this application will read the book via audio while the words are being highlighted visually. This helps kindergarteners learn the directionality of text.
