Well now it be in an iPad, too. On Tuesday, Burton introducedan app version of the educational program, which last appeared on television in 2006. The app will cost $9.99 a month, and include books, videos, and other dynamic learning tools.
"We have reinvented [Reading Rainbow] from the bottom up to make sure that, like the television show, everything was tied together to real-word experiences," Burton was quoted as saying at the launch. "[Our goal is to bring together] fun, education, magic, adventure, and the journey."
Kids using the app will be able to hear books narrated by Burton himself, as well as guest readers. The app goes live at midnight tonight, 12 a.m. on June 20.
