With their Icons Remixed series, PBS Digital Studios is doing it right. So far, they’ve taken some of the best personalities from their decades of programming and given them a freshening up of sorts. And the results have been great.

Today, another classic PBS icon gets the remix treatment: LeVar Burton and Reading Rainbow.

“For years, LeVar Burton and Reading Rainbow have taught kids everywhere about the power of books and imagination. To this day, the show continues to encourage a love of reading and connect children to the world they live in through quality literature — so they can “go anywhere, be anything.” With this remix, John Boswell has captured those enduring lessons in song — a fitting tribute to an important part of PBS history,” says PBS Digital Studios.

“One of the best inventions ever was the book. A book lets you zoom through time and space – but don’t bother packing. You can stay in one place!” Right on, LeVar.

Make sure to check out the previous episodes of the Icons Remixed series: Mister Rogers, Bob Ross, and Julia Child.
