Activity Suggestion: Reading is a favorite pastime of many people and a good way to keep from being bored. Have each child read a book and then watch several READING RAINBOW book review segments. Discuss with the class what happened during the reviews and how each child "sold" his or her book. Make a list of theelements that appear in the reviews. Give volunteers an opportunity to plan and perform a READING RAINBOW book review for the class.
