One of my Favorite Childhood Shows is Coming Back

By now you have probably heard the amazing, fantastic, great news that LaVar  Burton’s Reading Rainbow Kickstarter campaign has been fully funded. In less then 24 hours.  That is correct Mr. Burton was able to raise $1 million in one day.  That means Reading Rainbow lives.

The show originally ran from 1983 to 2006 with reruns happening until 2009.  This latest venture will be a new version of the series created for the web, a classroom version of the program for teachers, and a program that gives copies of Reading Rainbow to low-income schools for free.

This is my most favorite news in a long time and I can’t wait to see the amazing things LaVar will do with this.
