Take a look, it’s booked: LeVar Burton has hit his “Reading Rainbow” Kickstarter goal of $1 million dollars in less than 24 hours. At the time of this writing, Burton had more than 23,000 backers with 34 days to go. The actor’s latest “Reading Rainbow” effort will create a new version of the show for the web. Burton also plans on offering a “classroom version” of the program for teachers and is spearheading a not-for-profit that will give copies of “Reading Rainbow” away to low-income schools for free. “Reading Rainbow” ran from 1983 to 2006 and continued in reruns until 2009.
