"Where the Community Connects"


Lightbox is a dynamic, interactive non-fiction resource for preK and elementary aged students. Books for younger students include read-aloud options, or you can skip the read-aloud and advance pages at your own pace. These books also include interactive maps, videos, and links to related websites embedded right into each book. You can also check your reading with reflection or comprehension questions, a quiz or worksheet activities throughout the book. If you like experiencing stories on Tumblebooks, you'll love learning facts with Lightbox!
