Newton, NJ – TumbleBooks™, a digital collection of eBooks for kids, is now available through the Sussex County Library System's website –

Starting with existing picture books, TumbleBooks add animation, sound, music and narration to create electronic stories children can read or have read to them. There are currently over 250 animated, talking picture books available including read-along chapter books, nonfiction selections, and books in Spanish and French. There are also games and puzzles, Math Stories which promote basic math skills, and even graphic novels.

"This is such a great resource," stated SCLS Youth Services Coordinator Leigh Wilkinson. "Go to the library website, look under Access Your Library, click on eBooks and eAudiobooks, and scroll down to TumbleBooks. You can immediately Browse Books and start to listen. No need to sign in, create an account, download, or put books on hold. Everything streams instantly. It's great for little kids because it's so visual. They can pick a book cover that looks appealing and with two clicks someone is reading them the story. The animation and sound are so engaging, the highlighted text as the narrator reads is totally immersive. It's like undercover literacy."

In addition to 24/7 access through the Sussex County Library website, a TumbleBooks app is available for Android and Apple devices. Users must have an SCLS library card to sign in the first time, but no account creation or password are required.
