Again, please don’t click on this post unless you lived through the ’80s.
Put on your Reebok Pumps and get ready to take a big trip down memory lane.
Take it away Levar Burton!

Can you really choose between your childhood faves?
Yes! That's the guy from Reading Rainbow!
With LeVar Burton.
For anyone who is still haunted by the theme song to Unsolved Mysteries.

Let's be real, Mr. Rogers and Bill Nye were the best teachers you've ever had.
Plus 16 of the best selfie fails ever, Rob Ford's fashion highlights, and six filthy jokes that came from the Bible.
With the theme song to Reading Rainbow of course.
Diary of Wimpy Kid has nothing on these classics.
And neither can Stephen Colbert — as we learned on the Gatsby-dedicated episode of the Colbert Report. You know who could teach them to read, though? Levar Burton.
Plus a French-language short film starring Sarah Silverman, reading The Great Gatsby in Beijing, and LeVar Burton's new role.

"Our children rely on us to help define the world they live in," he wrote on Reading Rainbow's blog.
SO MUCH AWESOME.

Unfortunately it's just as an app. But any LeVar Burton is better than no LeVar Burton.
