Synopsis by Alice Day
Wishful thinking becomes reality when Louis the butcher becomes Louis the salmon in Reading Rainbow: Louis the Fish. The story inspires host LeVar Burton to visit some marine ecosystems, taking young viewers to see the creatures at the New England Aquarium in Boston and the Aqua Circus in Cape Cod. During the program, he reiterates the story's message about the virtues of being oneself. The panel of student reviewers also analyzes Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak, One Monday Morning by Uri Shulevitz, and A Fish Hatches by Joanna Cole and Jerome Wexler.
