Reading Rainbow and Beyond: The Experience of Reading

Does anyone remember the children’s show Reading Rainbow? As you can probably guess by the name, it was a show that encourages reading – especially among children. I remember watching it as a little girl and even feeling its influence on my love of literature as I grew older. The show was hosted by an actor by the name of LeVar Burton who also starred in Star Trek: The Next Generation. Here is a cool video link which features Burton discussing (appropriately it would seem) science fiction literature and the importance of reading.  It is a sneak peak at Burton’s own childhood and career as well as his thoughts on literature. Enjoy! :)
