Reading Rainbow. This show was best for all us latchkey kids. For a half an hour we sat down with LeVar Burton and learned that our imagination was freedom and books were the door to uncharted worlds. Well at least for 30 minutes, then it was on to the next thing.
I dont know if the children today have anything similar to the show. But, I know one thing for sure; if you grew up in the 80's - early 2000's you knew this theme song.
