    The 'Rainbow' shines again!

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/05/28/kickstarter-campaign-reading-rainbow_n_5405294.html

    Right now it's an app to subscribe to. And hopefully in the future coming into classrooms.

    And ironically, look at the watermark on the YouTube video of the original show's opening... look familiar?

            "Butterfly in the sky, I can get twice as high." "... weeds to grow". funny theme song. sounds like hidden undertones lol. That would be cool if they made lavar burton wear his star trek glaases every episode.

              I bet they change part of the theme to "Take a look, it's on a Nook...."

                Those are totally not the correct lyrics. Where did you get those from? It's "I can go twice as high" and "ways to grow."

                  I believe he used those lyrics as a joke.

                    From what I deduced this isn't the show coming back in the format as we all remember. But more of a app, learning software and mini video clips.
