Many of us will recognize those words as the theme from the highly successful PBS program, “ReadingRainbow”. (It aired from 1983 to 2006). My three children grew up fans of the show and I often found myself singing:
“Butterfly in the sky
I can go twice as high
Take a look
It’s in a book
A Reading Rainbow”
The good news is that LaVar Burton is back, this time with a free reading app for Apple and Kindle products. To learn more about his app and see what else he says on reading, visit the Reading Rainbow website at,
