Reasons we probably have an attachment to Reading Rainbow:

  1. It reminded us of what it was like when our parents read books to us (or provided that experience for those whose parents never did that, maybe)
  2. In contrast with most kids' programming at the time and since, Levar addressed us as children with respect, clarity and enthusiasm
  3. It was an imaginative message delivered on a passive medium (television) -- distinctly a leisure activity
