If you're in the mood to see something completely solid and commendable, check out this here site. Super-talented paleoartist David Krentz is releasing instructional DVDs, aiming to teach kids art and science in one mighty blow. In the trailer for the first DVD, you'll see that as David draws different parts of his subject, dinosaur experts join in to define new terms, such as "recurve," "supination," and "stereoscopic vision." Dinosaurs are the perfect gateway drug to science, and I hope that this series takes off. The next one, which I assume is currently in production, will deal with those stalwart ceratopsians.
This is going to be the perfect gift for my nephew once he gets a few years on him. If only this had been around when I was a tyke.
