Hooked on Reading (Series)

This series of six programs for parents produced by TV Ontario was produced by Linda Rainsberry and directed by Ted Follows, with an attractive viewers' guide written by the well-known critic of children's books, Michele Landsberg. Viewers were invited to join the adventures of Todd, Cassie, and Robbie as they shared with their father his enthusiasm for the world of books. In a dramatic format, the children came to understand their father's concern about too much television viewing. With a combination of knowledge about how to motivate a child to read and sessions of story-telling, the program dissolved into dramatized scenes from books carefully selected to capture the imagination of children. The format was designed to engage both parent and child in a pleasurable but informative viewing experience.
