The joys of reading

My son is seven. He's not the biggest fan of reading. He strives to do his best, but if he hits a snag while reading he tends to become frustrated and lose the desire to read.

This is now his favorite app. His ability to read when and what his mind desires surpasses his frustration.

We have tried many learning apps throughout the years. This by far has the most content. It is subscription based, and for me that's fine. I just want him to find out how wonderful a good book really can be.

The App is a Lifesaver

The kids I babysit have a limited time to play games or watch tv, so I got the app in hopes of them passing time. And it works! The kids love the animations each book has. They also play with stickers and watch educational videos that the parents are happy with. The videos star LeVar Burton like the original series which reminds me of my childhood. All in all Reading Rainbow Skybrary is a great time and definitely lets me have some free time from the kids.

Lots of great books and videos!!

I have three kids, 10, 6, and 2. All three of them love this app. Great content. Lots of books and educational videos. Well worth the cost of subscription! I grew up watching Reading Rainbow and I hope that they will make ALL of the old episodes available some day soon so that my kids can see them too
