Older cartoons and shows as a whole are classics. I will take the Looney Tunes, Scooby Doo, and Rugrats over most of this newer stuff.

Reading Rainbow was a superb show. I love how they have an app now. I do not want my children to be tech junkies, but I will make an exception for something educational. It is neat because we can track how many books she has read or listened to. It has an option where she can select "Read to Me" or "Read by Myself." She definitely utilises it, and we also purchased a couple of volumes of the show for her to watch. It keeps her quiet and engaged. I love that she has such a keen interest in books and reading. I hope that continues.
