Butterfly in the sky...

Reading Rainbow is going off the air after 26 years of encouraging kids to like reading, rather than just having to read. Now the reading shows on T.V. are going to focus on how. There are schools for that. Kids need to WANT to read.

This truly, truly sucks. I honestly thought it would go on until LeVar Burton kicked the bucket (hopefully not for a few more decades!).

This library volunteer/ex-library clerk/daughter of a librarian is very sad and disappointed today.

It was the third longest running PBS kids' show...after Sesame Street and Mister Rogers. Wow. 

Thanks, LeVar. You made a lot of kids want to read.
