What do butterflies, books, and rainbows have in common? Only one thing, unless you’re a well-read, Irish lepidopterist. LeVar Burton’s made-for-grade-school phenomenon “Reading Rainbow” inspired children across the nation to read with one feverish goal in mind: a free personal pan pizza for every five books read. In either a vintage-gold or retro-sunshiney color, you’re sure to attract the attention of affection-starved PBS viewers everywhere. Burton’s classic catchphrase, “But you don’t have to take my word for it” became famous in book reports, with book reporters, and now on your torso! Burton also unintentionally sparked the rise of a little-known but fanatical cult following called LeVar’s Gate, proving once and for all that there are friends to know AND ways to grow with “Reading Rainbow”.
