I LOVE the way Lavar reads. It would be great if he would read for the kids again. I grew up on reading rainbow and wish there was something like it. I will take this podcast in the meantime. Great job Lavar and Sticher!!!

Levar Burton Reads

The podcast is wonderful. I go back and listen to some stories again and again.

The Bob Ross of the Reading Realm

I remember listening to Levar on Reading Rainbow and then watching him on STTNG when I got older. I adored him as a child and still do as an adult.

Levar has an extremely pleasant voice and an exceptional ability to read the stories in such a way that you feel like you’re listening to multiple people and their conversations and picking up on their emotions.

It’s wonderful that he has picked up reading again and I can hardly wait for the next episode!
