Music, and how it has the power to unite people, is the topic for Reading Rainbow: Berlioz the Bear, and James Avery reads the book about a musical bear. Problems arise for Berlioz when his bandwagon gets stuck on the way to a performance. Host LeVar Burton meets street musicians and Dr. Walter Turnbull, director of the Boys Choir of Harlem. Each episode has a segment where kids review books related to the featured story, and this show offers analyses of The Science Book of Sound and Introduction to Musical Instruments about the following instruments: brass, percussion, strings, and woodwinds.
