I used Paul Zelinsky's Rapunzel in a Grade 4 unit on summarizing, and told the kids that I first encountered the book via an episode of Reading Rainbow. They looked at me blankly. I tried to give more information about the show, hoping to elicit some recognition. At my mention of LeVar Burton, I received the response, "Oh, yeah, I just saw him on an episode of 'The Big Bang Theory.'" I had a sad.

But now I have a happy ... a new app, RRkidz.com, will be bringing Reading Rainbow back!

In the meantime, I give you Jimmy Fallon's Jim Morrison singing the theme song.
