As we’ve mentioned before (and will again in the coming weeks), April is the Month of the Military Child. Military kids sometimes have a pretty tough gig. We’ll talk more about those specific challenges in other articles, but today we’re looking at something fun: toys! Military kids are still kids, and so most of the toys they want will be the same toys every other kid in America wants. However, I believe there are some toys that will particularly resonate with their situation. I’ve rounded up a few fun toys to help military kids understand and celebrate their family’s service. Let’s get started!

Women in Science, by Rachel Ignotofsky
Women’s History Month exists because the default version of history tends to leave women out. Of course women throughout time have made substantial contributions to the world. We must always remember that history (as my professors drummed into my brain on a daily basis for four years) is not what actually happened, but rather what we write about what happened. A logical first step to put women back into history is to examine- in writing- their contributions to various subjects, and allow them to regain their place in the timeline. Women in Science: 50 Fearless Pioneers Who Changed the World is Rachel Ignotofsky’s attempt to do just that.
