The Seattle Public Library adds 'Tumblebook Library' and 'BookFlix' electronic resources for children to online collection

The Seattle Public Library offers two new electronic resources for children and their caregivers called TumbleBook Library and BookFlix. See below for more information:

 

  • TumbleBook Library offers more than 150 animated, talking picture books from many publishers including Candlewick Press, Harcourt and others, for preschool- and elementary school-aged children. The service includes some books in Spanish and French. "TumbleBooks" are animated, talking picture books that teach kids the joy of reading in an exciting multimedia format.

  • BookFlix provides more than 80 animated, talking picture books from publisher Weston Woods paired with related nonfiction books from publisher Scholastic for preschool- and elementary school-aged children. The service includes more than 20 pairings in Spanish. This engaging way of linking fact and fiction reinforces early reading skills and introduces children to a world of knowledge and exploration.

"Patrons might be surprised by the wide variety of resources available to them from the Library's Web site," said Rachel Martin, electronic resource librarian at the Central Library.
