1983 was the year that an awesome American children’s television series called Reading Rainbow first aired on PBS. Passionately devoted to encouraging kids to read (and visit their local libraries), the show was hosted by LeVar Burton and ran until 2006. It is the third-longest running children’s series in PBS history, after Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood and Sesame Street.
In 2012 LeVar Burton and his company RRKIDZ released the Reading Rainbow App for the iPad. Within 36 hours it became the most-downloaded educational app in the iTunes App Store.
Emergency vet trip for Toki Wartooth (Not A Bumblebee) this morning wrecked my bank account (because I just got his pack mate, Arya Stark, spayed last Friday). He’s doing okay. Just has the beginnings of an infection and the bloody vomit early this morning was a result of him retching so hard all night.
Anyhow, if you ever wanted to commission me, now would be awesome.
I’m going to put this out there again to boost the signal. Because she’s all sorts of awesome, and her fuzzybutt doggie benefits from this.
