A Des Moines native will appear on the ABC TV show "Shark Tank" tonight, pitching her company to business executives, in hopes of winning their support and financial backing.   

Jordan Bookey and her husband started "zoobean.com" about a year ago.

The business enables parents to build electronic, tailor-made reading guides for their children.

Bookey says the experience of buiding her own business has been humbling and rewarding at the same time.

Bookey has family in Des Moines, and they'll be watching her promote  her company on the television program tonight at 8 o'clock.
