Tumble Books and other online resources for your children

Sharing a love of reading, rhyming and singing with babies and young children has been proven to be central to a child’s language growth and  latter reading ability.  The State Library of WA’s runs Better Beginnings, to support parents in giving their children a love of reading.

The most cruical way that parents can give their children a love of reading is by sharing books and reading to them, singing them songs and sharing rhymes with them from a very young age.  The Better Beginnings resources page has some excellent suggestions for first books, rhymes and songs to share with babies.   Links to a selection of websites will help you to locate the words and audios for many rhymes and songs.

As part of the State Library of WA’s commitment to supporting parents  a subscription to Tumble books has been provided.  Tumble books is a collection of collection of talking story books, puzzles and games that young children can enjoy online.  It is especially suited to children from 4 to 12 years old.
