On the heels of a successful Kickstarter campaign to bring back his beloved children's show Reading Rainbow, Levar Burton loaned his celebrity to Rooster Teeth's Extra Life charity telethon last night by reading the book Go The F*ck To Sleep.


Burton read Adam Mansbach and Ricardo Cortés' 2011 bedtime story to a group of mesmerized adults fanned out on the floor around him like children.

"The cats nestle close to their kittens," Burton began. "The lamps, they lay down with the sheep. You're cozy and warm in your bed, my dear -- so please, go the f*ck to sleep."
