Teenager discovers fossil of baby dinosaur
NBC News: In 2009, a teenager discovered the youngest fossil skeleton of a baby dinosaur that lived more than 70 million years ago. The 17-year-old spotted a bone from the skeleton on territory at the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in southern Utah.
Paleontologists walked right past the bones before the student, Kevin Terris, found them. “He was just in the right place at the right time, looking in the right direction,” says Andrew Farke, curator of the Raymond M. Alf Museum of Paleontology at The Webb Schools.

Picture books DO boost literacy: It doesn't matter what you read to your children as long they are interested in the story -
Hothousing toddlers with complicated story books does not give them an advantage over other children, researchers have found. Reading a picture book with one or two words per page is just as beneficial.
We’ve been preaching this for years: Just read. Magazines. Novels. Picture books. Comic books. The back of baseball cards. Anything. Only requirement: A kid has to be interested in what he is reading.
The love of reading just starts with a spark.
