Reading Rainbow iPad App for Kids

Reading Rainbow. . .  I can do anything … ” You can’t hear those words without thinking of the classic show that fed the minds and imaginations of kids for years.

The very popular host of this well-loved show, LeVar Burton, recently appeared in NYC to launch a FREE kids app that brings the best of Reading Rainbow into the digital age where kids are currently being engaged for both entertainment and education. Why not combine both and make education as fun as the show did over and over and again?

In fact, why not make it better by making books and educational games readily accessible at a child’s fingertips?

Personally, I think it is very cool and I believe this app not only takes the best of Reading Rainbow and makes it current but it also takes the best of the app experience and meets kids where they are, giving them exciting adventure, gorgeous pictures and interactive fun. Love it! And most importantly, this is a place kids will visit over and over.

Head over to the Reading Rainbow Facebook page to join the conversation! Lots of great updates here.
