“Reading Rainbow” Host LeVar Burton Reads Go The Fuck To Sleep For Charity
As if we didn’t love LeVar Burton enough already.
The “Reading Rainbow” host, who’s quite possibly the greatest storyteller of our generation, read Adam Mansbach’s children’s book, Go The Fuck To Sleep, for a crowd of adults during Rooster Teeth’s 24 Hour Extra Life stream. During the stream, more than $240,000 was raised for Children’s Miracle Network hospitals, in which LeVar’s performance helped to contribute.
The book, which is a classic for any and all parents who’ve struggled with putting their children to bed, currently has an audiobook version as read by Samuel L. Jackson. While I do love me some Samuel L. Jackson, LeVar has been reading children’s books to the world since 1983, and I’d easily purchase his version. His voice is just so smooth and buttery when he tells me to “lie the fuck down, my darling, and sleep.” Can’t argue with that.
