Children's Books and More

Listen to some of America’s favorite musicians and book lovers that created a song to encourage other Book People to join the cause. The track was produced by The Roots with vocal support from Jack Black, Chris Martin, John Legend, Jim James, Jason Schwartzman, Nate Ruess, Melanie Fiona, Carrie Brownstein, Regina Spektor and Consequence.

Slavery Book Choices


Choices Reading and movie Lists

Each year, thousands of children, young adults, teachers, and librarians around the United States select their favorite recently published books for the “Choices” reading lists. These lists are used in classrooms, libraries, and homes to help young readers find books they will enjoy.

The annotated and reading lists of titles and authors of Choices selections for the current year are made available in April, just before the Association’s annual convention and are available for free download. Check individual Choices programs below for details.

Online Reading Websites and More:





TumbleBooks are animated, talking picture books which teach kids the joy of reading in a format they'll love. They are created by taking existing picture books, adding animation, sounds, music and narration to produce an electronic picture book (and some classics) which you can read, or have read to you.  The language drop-down menu allows you to view the site in French and Spanish, instead of English.   Link is courtesy of Portland Public Library! I also added the link to TumbleBooks from the Cuyahoga County Public Library in Ohio on the Pre K - 8 Links Page 2.


Tumble Books is a collection of animated, talking picture books with fiction, non-fiction and foreign-language (French & Spanish) titles; Read-Alongs (chapter books with sentence highlighting and narration but no animation); eBooks and audiobooks, which may be viewed online or downloaded for 90 days; Tumble Puzzles and Games; and Tumble Resources. Link courtesy of Glen Ellyn Public Library.

Tumble Book Cloud Junior is a collection of read-along, online titles in categories such as Early Readers, Chapter Books, Teen Fiction, Classics & Drama/Poetry. The collection also includes downloadable eBooks which may be downloaded for 90 days. Download as many titles as you would like at one time! You can have them narrated aloud, turn the page automatically and you can even customize your screen for font size, text and screen color. Read-alongs are great for emergent, struggling or reluctant readers and will also appeal to accomplished readers who are excited to follow along in the narration of their favorite books!

Audio Book Cloud is another collection of online streaming and downloadable audiobooks which may be downloaded for 90 days. You may download as many as you would like at one time
