My impression of Reading Rainbow

Reading Rainbow offers a large variety of book in different subjects for different age groups for a subscription price of $9.99 a month or 6 months for $ 29.99 which is a better deal. My son is very bright but he is on the Autism Spectrum and for him, Reading Rainbow had too many distractions. The book selection is great! Going to the different islands to pick out books was more fun for him than actually reading the books. The books have animations that a child can press and watch it wiggle. I don't feel it adds to the story and for us it was a distraction. I think an ebook should book just like a paper book ( or at least have the option to turn that feature off) a lot the books had great illustrations and that ( along with the story) in it self should enough to engage a young reader. The videos are nice but there again, a distraction. If they had parent controls to turn off some of those features, I would give it 5 stars. We bought a 6 month subscription but I will not be renewing unless they make some of those changes
