Reading Rainbow is back in a new format this month (read the newspaper article here). The PBS show that promoted books and encouraged reading began in the early 1980’s, ran for over 20 years and won more than 20 Emmy Awards. The show is back in a new format (now with a price tag). Starting on March 6th at $9.99, Reading Rainbow Live celebrates “the joy of reading with a focus on movement and music… each event consists of a 25-minute show with singing, dancing, field trips, and special guests, followed by a 25-minute Reading Rainbow Live After Show Experience.” The creators plan a new show each month which is available to watch 30 days after the live event for those who purchase a ticket. Hosted by Looped, Reading Rainbow streams on demand with interactive tickets available on the day of the show. Many of the old Reading Rainbow DVDs, CDs and books are still available through our library system.
