Stop Ruining My Childhood!

Reading Rainbow… and Snack Packs

September 15, 2022

It's September, and that means it's back to school time! To celebrate, we're revisiting the show that got everyone to read in the summer... Reading Rainbow!

Hosted by Levar Burton, Reading Rainbow is an American educational children's television series that originally aired on PBS from 1983 to 2006.

After digging into the fascinating history of the show, Steve reminisces about  "Book It," a program that gave kids free pizza for reading, and Megan describes cataloging her books and movies as a kid. First, we both enjoy a school lunchbox treat, Snack Pack Pudding Cups! 

Does Reading Rainbow hold up? Do we miss the tin can Snack Packs used to come in? Tune in to find out!
