Did you ever watch the tv show “Reading Rainbow”? Why or why not? What was your favorite thing about the show?

The show started to air in 1983 and ran all the way to 2006 (I had no idea that it aired for that long). LeVar Burton was the host of the show the whole time it aired. I use to watch this show all the time as a kid. I found some pretty neat books through watching this show but I just liked getting lost in the stories they told on the show.

Do you think there should be more shows like this to get kids interested in reading? What other things do you think they can use to get kids interested in reading?
