WTVP is your place for PBS KIDS! Rainbow Readers is a series of short videos (30 to 60 seconds long) produced by WTVP that run locally on-air in-between regularly-scheduled children’s programming throughout the school year. The reports are modeled after the “for-kids-by-kids” video book reports at the end of each episode of the classic PBS series READING RAINBOW.

Local librarians from across central Illinois recruit the best and brightest from their summer reading programs. Students took time out of their summers to come to the WTVP studio and film book reports about their favorite stories or ones that they had read recently. These videos show the star readers chosen to represent each library. Keep reading kids!
