Remember Reading Rainbow? It was great, educational, and filled with all kinds of book-loving goodness. We all loved that blind guy from Star Trek letting us in on books like Amelia Bedelia and Where The Wild Things Are. Even the old school graphics and jingle were so catchy and cool, you’d have to stop yourself from singing it in the bath.
Nowadays, it seems like reading went the way of the dinosaurs. Dead, gone, rare at best. Luckily, there’s AudibleKids. If you’re familiar with Audible.com, the site that provides audible books for users everywhere, then you’ll get the idea of AudibleKids. It’s the kid-sized version ofAudible, the Reading Rainbow for the 2000s.
