LeVar Burton Wants to Bring Reading Rainbow Back

From 1983 to 2006, PBS aired Reading Rainbow, a LeVar Burton-hosted series designed to encourage children to read. For the past two years, Burton has been delivering new Reading Rainbow installments via a tablet app — but a new Kickstarter campaign aims to greatly enhance the program’s reach. The expansion would revive Reading Rainbow on the internet, and develop a specialized classroom version of the series that would be delivered to schools in need for free. If the program meets its minimum funding goal, they’ll be able to distribute Reading Rainbow to more than 1,500 classrooms.
