Rainbow Rangers Rocks Reading Time

Reading time just got a whole new set of colors streaming in! Let us introduce you to the Rainbow Rangers!

Rainbow Rangers is an American computer-animated television series produced by Genius Brands which premiered on Nick Jr. on November 5, 2018. The series follows seven 9-year-old magical girls – Rosie Redd, Bonnie Blueberry, Indigo Allfruit, Anna Banana, Mandarin Orange, Pepper Mintz, and Lavender LaViolette – who are represented by the colors of the rainbow.

Now the series can be taken to bedtime with the book series. We got to review four of the books and are delighted to share it with all of you.

Rainbow Rangers: Rockin’ Rainbow Colors (Ages 1 to 3)

Summer Greene’s Rainbow Rangers: Rockin’ Rainbow Colors is an original adventure based on the hit animated series on Nick Jr.!

Perfect for the youngest Rainbow Rangers fans, this tabbed board book is a great introduction to color concepts.

Each Rainbow Ranger rocks a different color of the rainbow! Meet these superheroes, from Rosie Redd to Lavender LaViolette, and learn their matching colors!

Rainbow Rangers: The Quest For The Confetti Crystal (Ages 3 to 6)

The Rainbow Rangers, nature’s superheroes, are throwing a party! Floof, their pet prismacorn, is in charge of protecting the very special Confetti Crystal for the celebration. When the crystal disappears, Floof goes on a journey through the rainbow world of Kaleidoscopia to retrieve it. With the help of some new magical friends, can Floof find the crystal and save the day?

Rainbow Rangers: To The Rescue! (Ages 3 to 6)

Kalia calls the Rainbow Rangers, nature’s superheroes, to action! A melting ice floe has separated a polar bear cub from its mother. Rosie Redd, Anna Banana, and Bonnie Blueberry are sent on a rainbow-ride to Earth to save the day. But they’ll have to work as a team to reunite this polar bear family!

Rainbow Rangers: Meet The Team (Ages 3 to 6)

Meet seven girls who work as a team. They live in a magical land. They help protect Earth and save the animals. They are the Rainbow Rangers and they are nature’s superheroes! Learn about each Ranger’s personality and power in this character guide. The clear text and colorful illustrations make this book a perfect fit for new and emerging readers.


Rainbow Rangers have truly made a colorful splash on our reading line-up! We were very excited to get to know these amazing Rainbow Rangers who are heroes to Nature on Earth. We can all learn about helping through their adventures. We may not have their super powers but we are capable of helping nature and the environment around us.

It is hard to pick a favorite from this series as we loved each and every book. We also love the word-play on the rainbow colors with all their names! Nikki’s personal favorite is Anna Banana.

Each book in the series is delightful, colorful and full of adventure for young readers. Therefore, for this #MelAndNikkiReview, we give the series 5 rainbows out of 5! You will simply love each character and what they bring to the team as they protect the Earth’s environment.

Until next time…Happy Parenting!

It’s Not A Bed, It’s A Time Machine

“Close your eyes. Imagine your next adventure. Then it’s blastoff in 5-4-3-2-FUN!”


Bedtime means lights out, with dark corners and spooky sounds. But it also means…ADVENTURE!

Because it’s not a bed, it’s a time machine! And you’re about to ride it to the coolest time of all – the age of the dinosaurs. Get ready to make a tyrannosaurus-sized friend who’ll help you become the Boss of Bedtime.

So pay attention! While tonight’s sleep will span millions of years, it’ll feel like it’s over in the blink of an eye.


A bedtime journey that takes you back in time to the dinosaurs is exactly the story we love to read! Who doesn’t love adventure?! It’s Not A Bed, It’s A Time Machine is a great children’s book that will have you imagining where your “time machine” can take you next. We loved the use of imagination, adventure and illustrations which tied in perfectly to this story.

We have read this book often since it has arrived and once we finish reading the story we talk about where we would love to travel to. So far, we always end up at Disney World (hehe). Either way it is so great to talk about adventures right before bedtime as it sure helps in having some wonderful dreams (I love dreaming of Disney!).

Superb children’s book from beginning to end; therefore, for this #MelAndNikkiReview we give it 10 tyrannosaurus out of 5! We recommend this book for children ages three to seven. If you would like to purchase a copy of this book that was just released this week, click here.
