Reading Rainbow: Starring LeVar Burton
Take a look, it’s in a book, a Reading Rainbow! For over 30 years, this beloved children’s television series has been bringing stories to life. Hosted by acclaimed actor LeVar Burton (Remember Star Trek Next Generation? I loved him in that show!) journey to exciting places and build a lasting connection with your favorite books.
Episodes included in this DVD:
1. If You Give A Mouse A Cookie – Celebrity Reader: Beth Howland
Beth Howland reads If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, the tale of a little boy who offers a cookie to a mouse. Watch as one thing leads to another, showing how actions lead to consequences. Finally, see a domino expert build world class displays. (This totally thrilled both my four year old son and my eight year old daughter!)
2. Owen – Celebrity Reader: Matthew Broderick
It’s easy to get flashbacks while watching Reading Rainbow. Now it’s LeVar’s turn, as he gets in touch with visions of his boyhood. Matthew Broderick reads Owen, about a little mouse who’s very attached to his security blanket and doesn’t want to give it up, even if it means he will be teased when he starts school. ( I was very happy for LeVar Burton making his dreams come true personally by writing his own children’s book and having it published! Now to have the famous actor Matthew Broderick (also one of my favorites) share LeVar’s story called Owen in this video – it must have been a dream come true for LeVar! I love to see those kind of dreams come true!)
3. Two Old Potatoes and Me – Celebrity Reader: Jordan Puryear
Jordan Puryear reads Two Old Potatoes and Me, about a girl who works with her father to reuse two old potatoes by replanting the sprouts to grow a whole new crop. LeVar, working with his daughter, is inspired to make potato dishes from recipes in the book. (Some delicious recipes to try and a lot of fun seeing father and daughter making them together.)
4. Mr. George Baker – Celebrity Reader: Wayne Brady
(Be inspired!) Wayne Brady narrates the story of an elderly man who decides to go back to school to learn to read, even though he is almost 100, and his relationship with his young neighbor as they wait for the bus every day. It’s never too late to make your dreams a reality!
I have always enjoyed Reading Rainbow, and now to see it with my own children all these years has been such a blessing! I really enjoyed this particular collection of shows in this DVD. I hope your family will be blessed by it too. Reading is supposed to be fun, exciting, adventurous and full of smiles – Reading Rainbow and LeVar Burton accomplish bringing that to life within this DVD.
