Teaching is a high calling, but it can be difficult to get through to your audience. My wife is a scientist studying fresh water and rivers, my brothers are an architect and a bioinformaticist, my sisters-in-law are medical doctors, and I have a Google employee for a brother-in-law. I have more doctors and scientists among my step-siblings. That is to say, I am a fierce proponent of math and science education - it has benefitted the people close to me, and I love to see it embraced and honored through a vehicle so close to some of my own passions: art and comics.
Pardon my expansiveness, but I love what Sam Hiti and Joseph Midthun are doing with World Book here. It is important work in the guise of silly drawings and fun stories. Bravo, sirs!
