Not too many TV shows encourage kids to turn off the television and read a book instead.
But that was always one goal of PBS's 'Reading Rainbow': reminding kids that although TV can be fun, books and imagination are even better.
'Reading Rainbow' ran on PBS from 1983 until 2009. In each episode, host LeVar Burton (also known for his role as Geordi LaForge on 'Star Trek: The Next Generation') would explore a theme from a book in a number of segments and stories.
The remix highlights one of the show's key messages: kids can use their imagination to bring the ideas and images in a book to life.
Now if you'll excuse us, we're going to shut off the internet and do a little offline reading.
