I can remember as a child how strange it was to run across someone like a teacher out in public. Trying to comprehend that they were ordinary people outside of the classroom was a struggle. I’d always seen them in a particular setting and when that changed, it was completely foreign.

That same feeling washed over me as I watched the clip below of childhood icon LeVar Burton reading a not-so-child-appropriate book entitled, “Go the F**k to Sleep.”

Expletive-filled reading isn't the norm for Burton; it was done to help raise money for charity. In fact, much of Burton’s work is now centered on helping less fortunate kids.

Earlier this year, he spearheaded a Kickstarter campaign to bring Reading Rainbow to more platforms and develop a version to give to low-income schools free of charge. The campaign raised more than $5.4 million and currently holds the title of most backed Kickstarter project ever.
