The Georgetown Peabody has access to children’s ebooks through Tumblebooks. TumbleBook Library is an online collection of TumbleBooks animated, talking picture books which teach kids the joy of reading in a format they’ll love. TumbleBooks are created by adding animation, sound, music and narration to existing picture books in order to produce an electronic picture book which you can read or have read to you.
