Reading Rainbow Launches Digital Library for Elementary Schools

RRKidz has launched Reading Rainbow Skybrary School, an educational digital library designed for students in early elementary school.

"Skybrary School offers a rich multimedia resource filled with close to 1,000 fiction and non-fiction books, newly produced video field trips hosted by LeVar Burton and standards-aligned themed lesson plans developed by educational specialists specifically for Skybrary School," according to a news release. "This Netflix-like learning service is based on Reading Rainbow's award-winning Skybrary Family digital library, yet features a powerful new teacher dashboard, Common Core-ligned content and easy to use management tools."

Features include:

"Teachers devote their lives to giving students the tools needed to succeed in reading and we want to make sure we are doing the same for them," said LeVar Burton in a prepared statement. "With Reading Rainbow's Skybrary Family and now Skybrary School, we are offering a comprehensive solution to assist both educators and parents in providing engaging and relevant content to develop children's literacy and learning skills."
