Dear readers,

August is Back To School Month! This month has been celebrated since the sixties and it’s a busy, busy time for all kinds of parents with school-aged kids and young adults heading off to college. The stores are positively dripping with back-to-school sales!

To get you into that learning mood, we’ve rounded up 10 stories from our archives about the joys – and terrors – of back-to-school shopping!


Light On The Brain Cells – It’s probably a bad idea to teach kids to fear certain colors.

The Only Thing They Are Providing Is Indifference – Hits from the comments: “Uh-oh, looks like somebody slipped over here from a timeline that’s not completely horrible. Boy, are they in for a series of shocks.”

They Put You In A Bit Of A Bind – It’s bad enough that the kid was confused, but her dad, too?!

In A Very Taxing State – What part of “free school supplies” are you struggling with?

Supplied With The Force – This is the most important school supply you’ll ever own.

10 + 10 = 100 – Is “digital arts” grown-up speak for “finger painting”?
