When my children were young, we had a copy of the computer game "Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?" which I played few times. I didn't know at the time it was a franchise that included a popular game show and cartoon series. But I've heard that the cartoon series is now being reissued by Mill Creek Entertainment.
The American Chesterton Society blog recommends the series for its educational properties. What saddens the reviewer, and me, about the educational system we have today is that for some students, this series might be the first introduction to the larger world in which they live.
It is our duty to help children develop a love for learning and exploring. Besides building knowledge, education also helps increase our wonder.
You never know, the child who learns can be like some of the people Glenn Sunshine writes about in his InDepth series "Christians Who Changed Their World," found at ColsonCenter.org.
As for "Carmen," if your family hasn't seen it, now might be a good time.
