The person who could save this show? Oprah!


It makes sense. She's displayed a great love of literature and of children's causes, so why not lend her support to 'Reading Rainbow' and encourage children to read in the way her book club worked for contemporary authors?

kids won't buy a book because oprah tells them to read it *shrugs* ; Kids are more shrewd than the soccer mom masses that worship oprah

Well, having gullible moms buy the kids' books Oprah tells them to would be a good start, but I just think that the cost of fudning a small handful of 'Reading Rainbow' episodes is a pittance for her and a cause she'd get behind.

good point i reckon.

That's a really good idea, IanDSmith. I can't imagine her doing Reading Rainbow now, but when she's older, less busy and prefers to stay in one location longer I think Reading Rainbow would be something she could have fun with.
