Reading Rainbow is BACK!

LeVar Burton, of Star Trek and Reading Rainbow fame, has decided to mix these two venues by bringing his reading program to every internet child with internet access...for free. He has posted this project to kickstarter today.

Check out the kickstarter here.

That's right, they made their one million dollar goal before the day's end. What does this mean for the future of literacy? Great things, we hope. Keep in mind, this will do nothing for children of families without the means to access the internet, but with the availability of the internet at schools, entire classes of children may soon be listening to Mister Burton reading The Giving Tree.

What do you guys think? Can Burton succeed in bringing literacy levels up through the power of the internet?

Watch this to bring back some good memories.
