Resources

TumbleBook Libraries (K - 8)

It is that time of year again when I need to renew each of our TumbleBook subscriptions.


Looking at use.....TumbleBooks (K-3) is used very well, TumbleBook Cloud Junior (4-6) is moderately used, and TumbleBook Cloud (7-8) is not used.


Let me know by the end of this week if you would like me to renew the resource. Thanks!
