TeenBookCloud

Stream eBooks, graphic novels, videos, and audiobooks of high interest to tweens and teens, as well as classics and some teacher-assigned titles. You'll need an internet connection only—no downloading!

How does TeenBookCloud help teachers?

In many ways! Take a look at these TeenBookCloud features:

  • Most titles have reading level information on the title record page, including Accelerated Reader (A/R) and Lexile levels as well as publisher-suggested interest level grade ranges.
  • Some titles have accompanying lesson plans and quizzes linked on the title record page.
  • TumbleTracker lets teachers track their students' reading progress, assign books to read and quizzes to take, and tailor assignments based on student activity. (Find out more about TumbleTracker under "About" in the main menu.) You may request a TumbleTracker account by sending your teacher email address to info@tumblebooks.com.
