Kickstart Reading Rainbow

Butterfly in the sky!
I can go twice as high!
Take a look
It’s in a book
Reading Rainbow!

If you are like me, and pretty much everyone else I know, then you grew up watching and loving Reading Rainbow. You tuned in to PBS and watched LeVar Burton share a love of reading. The show went off the air in 2009, and over its run time influenced millions of children.

Now, LeVar is trying to kickstart a new generation to fall in love with reading. Literally. He has started a Kickstarter campaign to raise enough money to bring back the beloved show. And this time, he hopes to add to the experience with the array of technologies not available back when the show stared in 1983, like tablet readers and a Reading Rainbow app.

So if you are looking for a good Kickstarter to back you should consider this one. The minimum pledge is only 1 dollar.

But you don't have to take my word for it...

See the great Kickstarter page at: "Bring Reading Rainbow Back for Every Child, Everywhere."

Also, here's an NPR All Things Considered interview with LeVar:
