Interesting info...I had no idea about this problem with copyright dates! Great post about how Jen Besel stopped the presses! With all the new discoveries each day, there's plenty to write about!

As a parent of a kindergartener who loves nonfiction, I would love to see more on current science topics. I think it's important that we teach our children to check copyright dates and how to find credible sources for more current information (not Wikipedia). For example, yesterday my son was looking at a Time Life space book from 1964. It had lots of "what we will do on the Moon" including living there for 2 years. I explained that the book was published 5 years before Apollo 11. He has lots of other, more current space books, including a DK Space encyclopedia, but we could have easily gone to the NASA Web site. You could provide a special link or code in each book where students could find out the most up-to-date.
