Award description

From Site: Each READING RAINBOW program is based on a highly acclaimed children's book. Hundreds of children's books were evaluated in the selection process for the READING RAINBOW feature and review books presented in each program. The criteria for final book selection are literary and artistic excellence, adaptability to television, appropriate theme and length, and cultural diversity. Efforts to ensure a broad cross cultural base by avoiding stereotypical portrayals of major characters is an additional criterion. The content of the series is designed to motivate children to read good books by engaging their effective and cognitive domains. One other way children become successful readers is by reading good stories that have intrinsic value and interest to them. READING RAINBOW meets the challenge of using the technology of television to stimulate children's interest in the wonderful world of books. (http://canlearn.com/ReadingR/rrdescri...)
