I fell in love with you when I was a 14 year old girl watching Roots. Years later my 3 year old daughter would love you when I introduced her to the Reading Rainbow. You would even become a part of her classrooms in school. Today she's 25 and we both are ecstatic that I've found you again!! I subscribed to Calm and listened to your solar system read. I've never heard the end of it!!😴 I fall asleep before the end!!! LOL!! Lavar Reads has become my Audible. So relaxing, and what variety! Do not stop any time soon. ❤

That was really stupid story. Where are the teams of engineers doing maintenance on the wall?

gave me chills! I was reminded of that old feeling I got watching the Twighlight zone. sometimes the ideas of the unknown are more scary than the visual/audible telling of what things happen in the world.

Your taste in literature is immaculate sir. Thank you for all of your work Mr. Burton. You have helped me more than you could ever know. This world is brutal, hearing your storytelling brings me solace. Again, thank you.
