It's alright. Our school and local library both recommend it. We use other apps for the kids to read for lessons, so I decided to use this one to read to them, since we can't get fresh books from the library right now. It has a great selection, but I find it's a little slow to navigate. You have to load the book, only to find it's only a video, not an actual e-book to read. I did find some e-books, but all my kids favourites seem to be just videos. More e-books to read would make it better.

love this app so much. when it updates to keep device from sleeping, I'll gladly give 5 stars. it's just so annoying to have to tap the screen every 30 seconds to a minute to keep from sleeping as we listen to the stories. I know I can adjust the time on the tablet but I don't want to do that just for this app.

April 14, 2019: I'm a library member. im able to login to tumblebooks in a web browser and get the full experience. i have an Android phone (pixel). this app launches well. i can also login successfully. however, once i click on a book, the book doesn't launch. This app should be removed from the Android Play Store until this problem is resolved. The iPhone app seems to be working fine.
