tumble books

Does anyone use tumblebooks? DS' school suggested the students use it. From what I understand it's just books being read to you right?

Has anyone found this helpful?

Kinda think I'd just rather read with him.

Never heard of them.  We read together and dd has books on her kindle that are interactive.  She has also had tag (leapfrog) system before she started school.

Haven't heard if it, but going to look into it.
Books on tape are great for comprehension skills.
My kids love books on tape. All of mine listen to something every night. We read every night too.
After we read, they get a cd. My six year old is listening to the marina series.
My older girls are listening to the kingdom keepers series, even though they have all read the books! Mine just love to lay and listen.

I have no experience with them, but I hope more moms are able to have some insight.

It sounds like they turn books into short videos that you can watch while following along with the actual book.  There is a subscription cost involved.

I have never heard of it. We have always went to the local library and gotten books they are interested in. As well as visit a half price book store where they also pick out books to buy for our book shelves.

When they were younger we took turns reading together. Now they read on their own. I still read a few nights a week to them from a big chapter book. They enjoy our evenings listening to me read to them.
