Remembering Reading Rainbow

30 08 2009

Tonight we were saddened by the news that Reading Rainbow will no longer be aired on PBS.  Filming for the show ceased in 2006, but it continued to air on PBS until August 28th, 2009.  Reading Rainbow enchanted viewers, kids and adults alike, for 26 years.

We both remember watching the show and loving every moment.  Reading Rainbow played a big role in expanding our knowledge and love of books.  And that theme song never got old.

Reading RainbowOne thing is for sure, we are going to make sure that our future kiddos are exposed to the joys of Reading Rainbow, even if that means buying a DVD box set.  Yet we’re still hoping that someday it will return to the small screen due to the outcry of other Reading Rainbow fans out there.

You will be greatly missed, Reading Rainbow, but you will always be in our hearts.  Thank you so much for sharing new books, ideas and places with us.  And LeVar Burton, you rock.
