Take a Look, It's in an E-Book…Reading Rainbow

Yes, I’m an 80s baby, and I proudly admit I loved Reading Rainbow! I actually watched a couple of episodes of Star Trek because I loved LeVar Burton on Reading Rainbow. But being that it’s Star Trek, I quit that pretty quickly. So imagine my excitement to hear that LeVar Burton is bringing back Reading Rainbow…as a free iPad app!

I’m also hearing it will be coming out as a free app on select Android devices (hopefully mine!). Don’t judge. If  people can play Angry Birds without judgement, I can have a Reading Rainbow app.

“For 25 years Reading Rainbow gave me the opportunity to excite children about books and reading through the medium of television. With RRKidz, I will be able to bring that same spirit of discovery, imagination and adventure to today’s digitally connected kids through enhanced e-books,” said Burton.

There’s an article about it in Geekosystem.com with an author who may be just as excited as I am about a Reading Rainbow comeback. My new favorite quote (taken from the article’s author Eric Limer): “My only question is will it still have the theme song? And will they say “take a look, it’s in an eBook”?”…I sure hope so!

I think it’s amazing how far technology has come. It was such a successful educational show that sadly died out with changing times. I have no doubt that this technological re-vamp is exactly what it needs to be successful once again. Step aside Dora, Reading Rainbow is back!

Of course, you don’t have to take my word for it…

Doesn’t know how to cook and survives pretty much on macaroni and cheese and pizza, so naturally, loves to eat out at restaurants. However, one day when she is married and has a family to cook for, she would love to take cooking classes and learn awesome skills like the chefs on Iron Chef America...as long as she doesn't have to clean the dishes afterwards.
