Gever Tulley, who organized a tinkering workshop for kids
at Maker Faire (you can watch videos of the workshop and
download instructions for his bottleboat submarine at
tinkeringschool.com/blog), has been talking to me about a
book idea of his that I love:
50 Dangerous Things You Should
Encourage Your Child to Do. He and I agree that American
kids are raised in an overly cautious manner, out of fear
that they might get hurt, and we are limiting their ability to
explore a wider range of experience. In place of traditional
safety warnings on kids’ toys, Gever came up with the labels
on the next page. —Dale Dougherty
