Synopsis >

Exactly what its title says it is, Reading Rainbow this time all is not what it seems as LeVar demonstrates optical illusions from the book by Arline and Joseph Baum. He also shows how special effects are created for television; meets artist Christian Thee, who paints trompe l'oeil, or trick-the-eye, paintings; and shows clips of kids creating their own optical illusions as well as optical illusions in nature--camouflage tricks that animals use to deceive predators. In this unedited, original episode of Reading Rainbow, join LeVar Burton on an educational and entertaining adventure through classic books, video field trips and the always favorite kid book reviews.
