Thank goodness! Because we were feelin' pret-ty sorry for the future generations of kids who (we thought) had to wander through reading without Levar Burton and his magical Rainbow!
Yes, folks! It is official! Reading Rainbow is coming to an iPad near you!!
Needless to say, Levar is super stocked about the whole thing, saying:
"We know that kids want bells and whistles, so we give them bells and whistles but we give them in a way that makes sense to us and supports the storytelling experience. We’re really proud of the way we’ve been able to translate that television format. The book is the heart, the center, the soul of what we’re doing. We sort of expand that universe and explore it in other ways — but the sense of exploration and discovery of the real world through literature is absolutely consistent."
The app is intended for children 3-9… children who'll be able to navigate themed islands full of books, puzzles, and narration! A-MAZING!!!
Head on over to the iTunes store to download yours!! Even if UR not ages 3-9… Ha!
