    I love this show because I love LeVar Burton for hosting Reading Rainbow so much.

    By DeonFlood2, Aug 26, 2011

    I love LeVar Burton so much and I love Reading Rainbow because everybody and the whole world learn how to read. Books and everything is always on your side. PBS Kids is always proud for #1 recommendation for children and the world would love Reading Rainbow. Even I am. I'm in love with Reading Rainbow, and the Reading Rainbow guy named LeVar Burton.

    The educational show that tells us that reading can be fun.

    By Woahwoah312, Aug 17, 2011

    Remember when PBS Kids in it's "It's your imagination" days? Remember the network that didn't have that awful Wild Kratts,that idiotic Sid the Science Kid and that terrible The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot about That? Besides Arthur,this is one of it's best shows ever to air on PBS Kids. Reading Rainbow is a show about a guy (Forgot his name) who promotes reading to kids,and he even reads a story like Stellaluna or something like that. It may sound like a snoozefest like Nick News,however,it ends up being great. This show doesn't say "Hey you,turn off that TV and start reading",this promotes it very well. And I loved the theme song,though I loved the new one better. However,now,it's canceled. Why? So PBS can make room for it's other stupid shows. Thank you,Reading Rainbow,for inspiring us to read.moreless

    A great educational show!

    By z-agent, Dec 01, 2010

    Ever since age 4 I've always loved this show even taping over 10 volumes! I even let my mother borrow some episodes every now and then. Besides getting kids into reading books, it also shows them the world as well sometimes with animated segments. Can't say what my favorite episode is, there's too many good ones! It's also a great thing to hear various celebrity voices to those who have passed away (Raul Julia, Eartha Kitt, and Gilda Radner are among them). On certain volumes besides this, I also recorded many other treasures of PBS, some incomplete but good nostalgia nonetheless. Even though the show is ended, we need more shows like this.moreless

    Help me find this episode please!

    By i2uthanne, Apr 28, 2010

    I am trying to find an interstitial from RR and which episode it appeared in, although I think it appeared in more than one episode. It was live action video and it was a family who lived in a house near the woods (or a prairie?) and the house was very messy. The mother leaves, and the kids clean up the house. Most of the video is the children cleaning. The mother returns and everyone is happy. I remember the video had natural lighting, and I believe the mother left with a basket in her hand. The whole video is set to a music, like a music video. If you could tell me which episode this appears, I would be very grateful!moreless

    Great memories.

    By cactusjack39, Feb 25, 2009

    I remember watching this show when I was young and I have to say that this was one of the best shows for kids. It was eductaional and made reading more interesting. I especially liked the story time part of the show as I felt that it was interesting and very entertaining to hear various stories. I wonder why the show never just read one big story? Anyways, the show was a classic when it mixed the comedy and the story together. It was also very fun to watch the host explore buildings, museums, landmarks, and other places to make things interesting. Thank you.moreless

    The books featured in this episode can take viewers, young and old, to different places.

    By markdoublea84, Jun 11, 2008

    In this long-running PBS series, LeVar Burton--the host--goes to different places and explores the many wonders of reading. Each show has a different theme and at least 3 featured books in each episode.



    Each main book in every episode is narrated by a different celebrity guest star. You never know where your imagination can take you as you read those books. I can garantee you, this show will open up a wide world of reading to viewers of all ages. I would also have to say that LeVar Burton makes a great host for Reading Rainbow. For Reading Rainbow, reading rules!!!moreless
