Reading Rainbow: it’s back on Netflix!

My absolute favorite television show growing up is back!! And new episodes are in the making! How exciting is THAT?
According to, viewers will be able to watch Reading Rainbow Volume 1 on Netflix starting August 1, 2015. In addition, Skybrary will consist of exciting books and video field trips all geared towards encouraging children to read. 

I showed a couple videos about the show and the new app to my son and he’s excited. The app has a free 14-day trial period, then users can choose 1-month, 6-month, or 12-month subscription, with respective rates starting at $9.99.

Growing up loving LeVar Burton and this program, I want my son to enjoy it, too. I have a feeling I’m setting myself up for disaster, but we need to test it out before I get ahead of myself.  We will be testing out this 14-day trial and let you know what we think. 

Why don’t you go ahead and try it a all out, too, then we can chat about it in a week or so!
