TumbleBookCloud is a collection of videos
                          and chapter books in categories which include:
                          Ebooks, Read-Alongs, Graphic Novels, Videos
                          (from National Geographic!), and Audio Books.
                          Our books feature adjustable text sizes, full
                          narration, and a read-along function which
                          highlights text as it is read. These features
                          make TumbleBookCloud a great tool for
                          reluctant readers and ESL students. Plus, all
                          these options can be switched to manual so
                          readers can read at their own pace. Teachers
                          can take advantage of lesson plans and quizzes
                          that accompany the books.
