Readers — Did you hear about the New Year’s Eve discovery of a supernova by a 10-year-old? Pretty cool. That inspired Mental idntkakitd
Floss — one of the best-loved magazines at our house — to come up with a list of “10 Amazing Discoveries by Kids.”
Having dreamed of becoming an archeologist (my book is dedicated to the teacher who took us junior high kids on a real dig), I was particularly envious of the 9-year-old who found one of the world’s most intact skeletons ever — of a boy 2 million years older than him. What’s more: right next to that skeleton was the skeleton’s mom! (Did parents helicopter even back then?)
The rest of the discoveries are almost as amazing. Tell me YOU’RE not a little jealous when you read about the toddler who found an ancient pendant worth $4 million.
That’s a lot of Goldfish crackers. Read on! (Or go outside — maybe there’s another supernova out there.) — L.
