November 20, 2018 : Movie time at CK

We start out this week with two movie reviews: One a fun holiday film, the other a serious story of family problems. Then we head for the zoo to meet a very unusual baby, and we also get some good news for greyhounds and some other news about other animals. Add two book reviews and another chapter in our new adventure story and you've got an issue you'll be thankful for!

This week, we explore the largest island in the Caribbean, talk about the recent elections, review three books and an art project, consider a plan to contact aliens, find out how llamas might keep us safe from flu and begin a brand-new serial full of wilderness adventure.

November 06, 2018 : Honoring the Past

CK visits the Denver Botanic Gardens, where a special exhibit honors the veterans of World War I, which ended 100 years ago this Sunday. We also take a look at the new Disney Nutcracker movie, the history of Election Day, a funny but fun toy and an exciting novel. We'll also say goodbye to the Kepler Space Telescope and to Nellie Bly.

October 30, 2018 : Thrills! Spills! Laughs!

CK goes to a very silly movie this week, but then turns almost kind of serious for one of Nathan Hale's humorous looks at real history. Then we review a toy you almost certainly don't want, and examine laws against spanking and how they might help lower violence later. And poor Nellie Bly hits a rough patch in her life, while Big Nate simply gets embarrassed again as usual.
