Reading Rainbow's LeVar Burton Melts Hearts With MLK Storytime (VIDEO)

Story time just got so much better.

Everyone's favorite childhood program, Reading Rainbow, has released a Martin Luther King video just in time for the civil rights legend's birthday. The story time features Reading Rainbow's heart and soul, LeVar Burton, reading David A. Adler's picture book "Martin Luther King, Jr." illustrated by Robert Casilla.

The beloved children's reading series returned from a several year hiatus thanks to a booming Kickstarter campaign that surpassed it's goal by more than $4 million last July.

And boy are we glad it did.
