If you’re sleepy and you need somebody to read you a bedtime story, you couldn’t do any better than LeVar Burton, the man who taught generations of children about books on Reading Rainbow. Turns out, Neil deGrasse Tyson agrees.

It all started with this Tyson tweet from May, in which he professed his love for the classic children’s book Goodnight Moon.

Apparently, the universe (or someone’s PR team) heard that request and brought Burton and Tyson together for the most soothing nighty-night reading ever.

Now, if only Burton would read the No. 1 bedtime children’s book of all time: Go the Fuck To Sleep. Oh wait, he already did that.
