Yesterday, Cozy Classics received a shout out from LeVar Burton and Reading Rainbow! We’re thrilled that Reading Rainbow sees Cozy Classics as presenting challenging classics “the right way”, able to “capture the imagination of young readers.”
Most of you will remember that Reading Rainbow was an American children’s television series that aired on PBS from the early 1980s until 2006. The show, hosted by LeVar Burton, encouraged reading among children. The program garnered over 200 broadcast awards, including scores of Emmy Awards, many of which were for “Outstanding Children’s Series”. Today, Reading Rainbow has re-launched as an iPad app to encourage literacy in the digital age. Reading Rainbow 2.0 was built from the ground up by LeVar Burton and his company, RRKIDZ. We love that LeVar, after all these years, is still championing children’s literacy! Make it so, LeVar!
