Hundreds of children have grown up watching LeVar Burton on the PBS show ‘Reading Rainbow’ and learned to love reading, thanks to Burton’s positive teachings. He implored children all across America to read and use their imagination, as it would take them to the heights of the moon and to new countries across the sea.
Now, in a loving homage to a beloved television show, John D. Boswell created a remix of ‘Reading Rainbow’ for PBS Digital Studios to capture the lessons of LeVar Burton and to remind children that even today, as long as they read quality literature, they can “go anywhere and be anything”.
In an age that is inundated with texting and low-quality books like ‘Twilight‘ being released, this is a powerful reminder to young children to explore their literary horizons. Who knows? They may just discover that they enjoy reading and engaging their imagination.
