Series Title: Reading Rainbow
A New York City boy has some preconceived ideas of life in the West and it makes him very apprehensive about the family's move out there.
LeVar learns more about the West when he joins a biologist who shows him the Arizona desert and tells him about the plant and animal life - and he learns just what Gila monsters are.
