Lavar Burton hosts The book of the day is KNOTS ON A COUNTING ROPE read by J. Ruben Sivlerbird and Kenneth Blank. Book by Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault. We also visit with a New York news anchor Brie Walker who anchors local news despite her deformity on both hands. Brie is doing something she loves. Levar also asks, "when was the last time you had to be really brave?" The themes in this READING RAINBOW segment are covered by the selection of books and interviews "reach for your dreams" and "overcoming fear."
