Here’s a great resource for all early readers: the Free Preview Site from Tumblebooks. The preview site with full-length books is completely free, but for the full library, check out your public library (you maybe able to access from home with your library card number) or school.  There are chapter books and graphic novels for older readers, but not all of these have the read-along with a human reader function.

Tumble books has the handy feature of highlighting one sentence at a time as the sentence is read aloud. There are simple animations of drawings in the book to help guide children through the story.

Books like these are win-win because they improve vocabulary and a child’s enjoyment of stories while increasing word sight recognition and phonetic learning. Children can also more easily advance to conceptually ‘harder’ books this way. Students can even do their echo or guided oral repeat reading this way – have the program read the page, and then read aloud yourself.

Thanks Tumblebooks!
