Butterfly in the sky, I can go twice as high…

Probably the most influential educational show of my childhood; I would wake up just to watch Reading Rainbow during the summer, or rush home immediately after school. The best part of the program was that it was commercial free and had sponsor pre-rolls at the beginning. From the kid announcer’s voice at the beginning, I would wait in anticipation for the show to begin: ” Reading Rainbow was made possible through a grant from Kellog’s…also brought to you with a grant from the Corporation For Public Broadcasting…” haha I’ve probably seen every episode! Here’s a blast from the past and an ode to Levar, all the sponsors, and the whole crew at RR who helped me discover the joys of reading. But you don’t have to take my word for it…

Probably one of my most favorite episodes:

RUN-DMC on Reading Rainbow…

Probably the first time I heard rap…

I’ll see ya next time!
