    Ah, I have no problem giving my child books I would not read myself, our tastes in books don’t always agree… but I get the sentiment behind the saying, and agree with that!

    I love doing and building things together with my daughter, and I have gotten so many good ideas from BoingBoing, too (I was just today reading article about the Make 3D printer issue with the thought of it perhaps being time to get one… you know, to do stuff with my daughter, always a good excuse! :) ). So I’m really looking forward to reading Boing Boing Family!

    As a child I had many of the books in the picture above. It’s nice to see them again. They were actually my dad’s. He used them for reference when he wrote and illustrated a syndicated comic strip called “Dr. Funshine,” which ran all around the country in the early 1960′s. It was a DIY science experiment comic, starring Dr. Funshine who bore a striking resemblance to Einstein. I’ve looked all over for more information on the strip, only finding brief mentions in the ethers.

    I want that astronaut book.

  5. K, this might be a kind of stoopid question. Will the bB:f posts be part of the general bB feed, or are they kept separate? I see they’ve been tagged on the bB:f page, but I don’t seem to see any of them in my RSS.

    And from a parent who was avoiding BB because of a certain contributors fetishes that are adult-only oriented, I’m glad to see you do this Mark!  I felt the site wasn’t approachable for my kids.  That coupled with the new contributors fetish with Hollywood and the Entertainment Indu$try (Mainstream TV and Movies only, it seems), I felt my days even visiting BB were numbered… now maybe not.  Thanks again!  Cory, Mark and Pesco – please keep the good content flowing!!!
