I don't know where I would be without Reading Rainbow. It inspired me to read and develop a deep love of books of all kinds from a fairly young age.
Even as an adult I still enjoy watching RR, it's message is timeless ... explore new worlds and adventures through reading. I hope that whenever I have children of my own, Reading Rainbow will be available to them to enjoy and to learn from as I did.
They did such an incredibly good job with the series, LeVar Burton is still one of my favourite celebrities, and I think it will be around for a very long time (even if only in repeats).
