Storyblocks is a project of Colorado Libraries for Early Literacy, working in partnership with Rocky Mountain Public Broadcasting Services. It is a collection of 30-60 second videos designed to model to parents, caregivers, and library staff some songs, rhymes, and fingerplays appropriate for early childhood. Each video clip includes helpful early literacy tips to increase caregivers’ understanding of child development and pre-literacy needs.


Enjoy eBooks with added animation, sound, music and narration which the caregiver can read to the child, or the child can have read to them via an audio soundtrack. Some titles are available in Spanish or French. TumbleBooks also offers word searches and other puzzles and games. Available in multiple languages.
