Reading Rainbow: Borreguita and the Coyote
A little lamb uses her clever wiles to keep a coyote from eating her up.
Reading Rainbow's dynamic, fast-paced, magazine-style format amplifies kids' experiences by taking them to new places so they can experience people or activities they've not seen before. Colorful animation and fun music will entertain and reinforce these experiences. Popular personalities narrate the feature books in each episode while captivating illustrations appear on-screen. Capsule book reviews presented by students expand on the themes in the feature book, while "kid-on-the-street" interviews allow real kids to sound off about issues.
