Levar Burton and Reading Rainbow present four classic episodes on this new DVD from PBS Kids. If You Give a Mouse a Cookie read by Beth Howland, Owen read by Matthew Broderick, Two OId Potatoes and Me read by Jordan Puryear, and Mr. George Baker read by Wayne Brady. I’m especially fond of the last one, the story of a 100-year-old man and a first grader who are both learning to read for the first time.

Send me an email at with Rainbow in the subject line and tell me your favorite book for beginning readers. Don’t forget your address! (U.S. addresses only). I’ll pick a winner at random on June 7, 2015. Good luck!
