Nursery Rhymes iPad app lets you play remote Reading Rainbow

Streaming audio on the iPad has never looked so good. There's no shortage of digital books for the iPad, but only Nursery Rhymes with StoryTime uses streaming audio to allow you to read to your kids while away from home.Video demo after the cut

As well as a finger-friendly UI that walks kids through Humpty Dumpty, Jack & Jill, Three Blind Mice and other classic nursery rhymes, complete with some great looking animations, the app allows you to use a remote iPhone to read the story out loud as your child works their way through. It looks like a great way for parents traveling for business to also stay involved in their children's bedtime routine.

Nursery Rhymes with StoryTime is available from iTunes [iTunes link] now, priced at $3.99. The same app installs to both iPad and iPhone, so you don't need to purchase it twice.
