Synopsis by Alice Day
The Reading Rainbow series has won many awards as it promotes the advantages of reading in programs that combine a lively mix of information and entertainment. The shows are centered around a principal story, and from there, branch off to related activities and field trips that are fun and thought-provoking. At the end of each show, a group of youngsters reviews several books related to the featured story. In Reading Rainbow: Dive to the Coral Reefs, LeVar Burton scuba dives, discussing the uncertain fate of coral reefs with Harold Hudson, known as the "Reef Doctor."
