The Return of Reading Rainbow

Prepare to discover the gold at the end of the rainbow. In a Rolling Stone article, LeVar Burton discussed his plans to bring back his popular children’s show, Reading Rainbow, with some special technological advancement to reach the younger, modern audience. The original show ran from 1983 to 2006 with reruns airing until 2009 when it was pulled off the air in the wake of the No Child Left Behind legislation. Through his Kickstarter campaign, Burton hopes to bring the new show straight to the web and mobile devices to engage a newer age of tech-wielding youngsters. He feels that technology should be used as a positive tool to educate and connect with the internet-saturated generation.
