Readalong (Series) (1976-1979)

Readalong was a lively 10-minute broadcast for readers from Grades 1 to 3. A cast of humans and talking puppets led by Boot had adventures which illustrated various principles of reading.

It was reported that Readalong was used by 8 out of 10 reading teachers in Ontario, and it was also used in Alberta, B.C., Quebec and in about 30 U.S. states.

I remember this old show way back when it aired on TV.
My mom used to record it for me but our VCR back then was always jamming the tape and I never knew what happened to the VHS tape(s) it was recorded onto. I was shocked when I heard from a family member that the VHS tape(s) had to be thrown out. I was in so much shock that I would never see this show ever again. I do have some episodes through a couple of video traders, but I still miss the episodes I dearly remember and especially from Series #2. If anyone knows where I can order any Series and episodes from, please message me as I'm desperate to bring back old memories from the good old TVO days from years back when I was a kid.

Can someone get me a video link on the web to this show, (or let me know how to order it somehow) please?.
