Book Recommendations - Online Resources

There are some great online resources for books and stories. These are great when you are out and about, waiting in line or in a waiting room or traveling. Here are a few you might try out.

TumbleBooks - This site is free and is accessible through the Douglas County Public Library's Catalog. When you get to the library's site, search for TumbleBooks, then click "access online", then type in your library card number and pin, then your child can begin to read and/or listen to some great books. We use this site at school through the school district's connection and the crew really enjoys it. This site works best on a computer. It will work on a phone or tablet but the selection of stories is limited on these devices.

Storyline Online - This free website has videos of various actors reading a wide variety of great books. The crew also uses this site at school and loves it. This site has no login required. This site can be used on any device.

Epic! - This site is is free for teachers to use with their students at school. It can be used on a computer, phone or tablet. It is not free to use from home but you can get free 30 day trial which would be good to get you through the holidays. The crew also really enjoys this site, too.

Skybrary - This site is hosted by LeVar Burton and is related to the Reading Rainbow television series. I have not tried it but I have heard from families who have, that it is good. It is not free but you can get a free trial. It works on all devices.

The Douglas County Public library also has children's books available for check online, too. They will even help you figure out how to access the books on your device. Then you can check out books any time and anywhere!
