Reading Rainbow

“Butterfly in the sky
I can go twice as high,
Take a look,
It’s in a book,
A Reading Rainbow…”

Sweet Lovin LeVar, I loved the intro music to Reading Rainbow! When LeVar Burton wasn’t rocking the greatest pair of glasses in history on Star Trek , he was hosting one of the greatest educational television shows in history: Reading ‘Mother F#$king’ Rainbow! The show was chock full of stories and book recommendations (none of which I read) and just by watching the show you felt smarter. LeVar Burton was a great host and every episode it felt like a member of our family was being broadcast through the television to help encourage reading…ya know, that member of the family who occasionally flies on the Starship Enterprise…

To sum up, great show with an amazing host, and if I were ever lucky enough to meet LeVar Burton, my reaction wouldn’t be too far from this:
