Reading aloud is one of the best activities you can do to promote literacy, improve vocabulary and conversational skills, and increase school success in children. So, in honor of World Read Aloud Day, here are some of our librarian's favorite books on Tumblebooks! Tumblebooks is a curated database of talking, animated picture books that make reading easy and fun. The best part -- you can access any of these picture books for free with your NRH Library card.
