Children's Online Story Books


LOTE4Kids is a library eResource that allows kids to learn a language and connect with books through the magic of storytelling. You can choose from thousands of audio-picture books in 50+ languages, together with English translations.

LOTE4Kids is provided by the Friends of the Bettendorf Public Library.


TumbleBooks are animated, talking picture books which teach kids the joy of reading in a format they'll love.

TumbleBooks are created by taking existing picture books, adding animation, sound, music and narration to produce an electronic picture book which you can read, or have read to you.

TumbleBooks also includes National Geographic videos to watch and games to play that go along with the books.

The 2023-2024 annual subscription for TumbleBooks is sponsored by the Bettendorf Public Library Foundation and funded by gifts in memory of Dr. Carl H. Rowley, an avid reader and frequent patron of the Bettendorf Library
