If you haven't heard about the new spin-off of the Myth Busters show, Head Rush, well you need to check it out!
Is Shooting Fish in a Barrel Easy? and Can Roaches Really Survive a Nuclear Explosion?
Tell me you don't want to know!
Head Rush even surpasses Myth Busters by achieving my own personal trifecta of awesome: 1) it's science, 2) you blow stuff up, and 3) it's run by a girl.
OK, maybe I'm a little biased in that last one, but still.
My boys can't get enough of it, which I think should put the lie to boys not being interested just because a girl is involved. Frankly, I think that's why my husband watches it too.
I believe this equally applies to books - just because a main character in a book is a girl does not automatically make it toxic for boys. Even the young ones.
Would your kids, whether girls or boys, like Head Rush?
