Butterfly in the sky…

…I can go twice as high. Take a look, it’s in a book. A reading rainbow!

Like many of you out there in the Twittersphere today, I realized it was the 30th anniversary of “Reading Rainbow”!

“Reading Rainbow” was a highlight of my childhood, so I thought I’d take a second to pay tribute. I can honestly say that this show was integral in making me the book nerd I am today! I remember an episode about eggs where the host, LeVar Burton, stood on a bunch of chicken eggs wrapped with a little bit of clay to demonstrate their strength. I was amazed! (Obviously, I still remember that 20 something years later).

LeVar Burton and business partner, Mark Wolfe, created RRKidz to preserve the legacy of the show and continue the brand today. Pretty awesome!

Do you remember the show? Have any favorite segments or books featured?
