LaVar Burton Aims to Relaunch ‘Reading Rainbow’
If you grew up in the ’80s or ’90s, then there’s no doubt you’ll remember Reading Rainbow.
The popular PBS children’s show premiered in 1983 and ran new episodes until 2006 with reruns on the air until 2009. Now the show’s host, LaVar Burton, is trying to bring it back with a Kickstarter campaign.
The campaign has raised more than $1,000,000 so far and aims to create an online version of the show that children can access everywhere. Burton also plans to offer a classroom version and subsidize costs for low-income schools.
