Reading Rainbow is a renowned program for children hosted by LeVar Burton. For 25 years the show encouraged kids to read, exploring literature through themes, activities, and recommendations. Winning over 200 awards over the course of the show, it was sad to see it end in 2006, though now it seems it's making a comeback, in a different form.
RRKidz is the next generation of Reading Rainbow. Coming soon to Android, RRKidz will allow children to explore topics through voice-over books, videos, and games. LeVar Burton is the company's "Curator-in-Chief" and will be overseeing every detail of the project. The free app is not available yet, but will be soon on select Android devices. Full press release is after the break.
