Reading Rainbow (best free Android apps for kids)



Please note: The free download of Reading Rainbow comes with just one free book. Full access requires a monthly subscription that starts at $3.50. The classic TV series comes to life in app form, allowing children to have a particularly well done library of more than 300 books and video field trips on their Android device.  New books and videos are added each week and there are parent options for tracking and rewarding reading progress.

Given 4.5 stars in a review over at Smart Apps For Kids, Heather bottom lined it this way: A great app for a quality children’s book experience — particularly audio — with the trusted names of Reading Rainbow and LeVar Burton to back it up. The amount of good children’s literature is outstanding, but the need for a monthly subscription  may be prohibitive for many.
