I can go anywhere.....

Reading Rainbow was one of my favorite shows as a kid. There was something comforting in the fact that you could lose yourself in a book, something I often did as a child (I was a loner). I also loved TV (I didn't have friends), so combine two of my favorite things together and you get this fabulous show that promotes reading. It also helped that the show was on PBS and had no commercials (I have ADD).

This show was not only cool because of the many books it featured, but it had some great guests, and lets not forget the host, LeVar Burton, of Star Trek: The Next Generation fame.

Speaking of the guests on Reading Rainbow, here is a clip of when rap group Run DMC was on the show. I actually remember this appearance.

Reading is a very fresh way to learn!
