I can go twice as high...
LeVar was teaching me to read and see my world well 26 years ago on public television and he I am so glad to find he has continued to show us stories that take us places we otherwise could not go. I would love to hear any story from Neil Gaiman.

Go Lavar, go!
Lavar Burton is my hero! I’d love to hear something from Lionel Shriver’s ‘Property’ collection..

I was a reading rainbow kid!
I’m so elated that now at 40 I can still get read to by LeVar ❤️❤️❤️. I’ve listened to every episode and some twice! I’m anxiously awaiting the new season. I love you LeVar, stay true, stay beautiful. You’re such a wonderful soul, you inspire me to be the very best I can be.
