Final Encore for Reading Rainbow

Posted by Jessica on August 31, 2009
When we were little, my brother and I were not allowed to watch much television. Our viewing choices included Sesame Street, Square One, the Muppets, and, of course, Reading Rainbow. Sadly, after 26 years, Reading Rainbow is now off the air due to insufficient funding for PBS.

I remember gleefully singing along with the theme song. So, for one final encore, let's all sing along with Reading Rainbow!

Amy That wonderful show took my students to places they never could have gone...caves, coral reefs, the desert, NYC streets, the theater, you name it RR went there and tied it all together with great books. One of my faves was the Piggy in the Puddle where they worked with clay.
Lavar Burton was incredible! RR you will be missed!

Kirsten Wow... I can't believe they pulled Reading Rainbow. That makes me so sad. Of course, the show could not hold the attention of any of my children (9,7 and 4)... which is crazy cause as a child I loved it! But, all of them Loved the Theme Song! Thanks for posting it for us to listen to one last time... and the first one was the best anyway!
