A hare packs its bags and takes a bicycle tour in this lovely rhyming picture book. Donning its jaunty chapeau and dapper pea coat, a hare cycles through forests and a covered bridge, past a paddlewheeled seaside inn, and into the evening lights of the big city. Exploring the neon-lit metropolis, it rides atop a trolley, pedals past a jolly carnival, and cruises over Seussian suspension bridges. Continuing on its way, it journeys through an arid desert, over indigo mountains, and back home again.
Utilizing pale yellows, greens, and pinks, and drawn with an incredibly thin line, Wherever You Go's deep focus art fills every page with an expansive landscape. Little eyes could get lost for hours searching out minute details. Owls ride in baskets, mice chug along on tugboats, and alligators fish near ponds, and lazy afternoons can be spent examining the intricate scenery. A liltingly poetic storyline about traveling and new experiences is a delightful metaphor for life's journey. – S. Deathrage

Geometry Global of Hong Kong recreated painting masterpieces with Lego bricks. Maybe they tinted the bricks after the fact in Photoshop, but the effect is still great - they are instantly recognizable despite being very low-rez. I swear I can see the pitchfork in American Gothic.

Gohilla says: "I found this [see photo embed below] on the chassis of my car while I was working on the exhaust system. I know it wasn't there a month ago, because I was under it working on the suspension. A quick search tells me that it's an rfid tracker. What does this mean for me? What do I do?" I found a tracker on my vehicle. I'm worried. What do I do?
There are a lot of projects designed to help kids learn to code… so that instead of just using games and apps developed by others, they learn the basics of creating their own software at an early age.
Google’s Project Bloks takes a different approach to most, because it focuses on tangible programming. In other words, kids learn to code not by typing characters onto a screen, but by snapping a series of physical blocks together.
