Synopsis by Alice Day
Encouraging young children to read has been the focus of the Reading Rainbow series. The many positive aspects of literacy are emphasized, with the programs offering celebrity readers for the featured books and host LeVar Burton taking viewers on frequent field trips to sites related to the stories. In this show, the book is about drought conditions and the solution to the problem devised by a young boy. Burton looks into puddle-jumping and takes viewers to the National Center for Atmospheric Research, where they learn about aspects of meteorology.
