If you haven’t familiarized yourself with Reading Rainbow, it’s high time you did!
Our beloved LeVar Burton, who you might have recognized from Star Trek: TNG, The Big Bang Theory, and…Reading Rainbow…, launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring back the nostalgic PBS glory that is Reading Rainbow into an interactive and highly acclaimed app. LeVar Burton hit his goal and surpassed with amazing speed, allowing him to bring Reading Rainbow back to the public with all new books as well as ways to reach people.
The about information on their Facebook page has this to say:

Their website is, quite obviously, http://www.readingrainbow.com
I found Reading Rainbow’s Facebook Page and without any consideration immediately liked it, and so far, I’m so glad I did. Reading Rainbow shares great quotes, images, and #OnThisDay facts. Well, see for yourself!

Between all the terrible news you hear, the drama between your friends, and really boring pictures of people’s dinners, Reading Rainbow really helps break it all up and put a grin on your face.
