Worth it!

"I bought this to show my 2nd grade class. Reading Rainbows, in general are tops, but some are better than others. I like 3 out of the 4 DVDs,(but for the price, it is worth it even for the 3). I judge this purely by my class, they were not wild about the DVD that pertains to music. One of the episodes on that one is an older one, and honestly we didn't even finish it, but if I remember, it didn't use the typical Reading Rainbow format. All the other episodes in this collection were a big hit though, and the DVD with Taxi Dog on it was worth it right there!"
Continues through the Generations

"The favorite TV show of my children was Reading Rainbow. The explanation to go with each story, the tours of factories to show how something was made are memories they carry today. I purchased this set for my Grandchildren as we can't even find reruns of this spectacular childrens program. My daughter can delight is telling her children about her favorite Reading Rainbow stories - two of which are in this set.
The facts Lavar Burton presents to the children are remembered. They do think about the whales and mannatee - two favoriet topics for a library trip.
Slighty Disappointed

"I bought these DVD's for my 7yr old. I read to him all the time and he's always walking around with a book in his hand. He really enjoyed the DVD's but I was disappointed. I expected to hear the ORIGINAL theme song from the 80's. What you get on the DVD's in the newer version of the song from the 90's, I think, which SUCKS. Other than that the DVD's are great."
I'm very pleased.

"I purchased it for my daughter and ourselves. we're not sure if she would like it or not, but she loved it. It's very sad to see this show off the air after 26yrs. Hopefully this company would produce more dvd sets for those love and enjoy the show."
