Caillou has been a fixture in our household every since Addie and I first came upon an episode of the show on either Sprout or PBS Kids about six years ago. A divisive figure among my readership, yes, but a beloved character for The Rock Daughters™, and one whose educational value I firmly stand behind, not just on television, but from the source material: books. We have several of Chouette Publishing's Caillou books here at Rock Father HQ, and now there's an assortment available on YouTube in all-new Read-Along videos direct from the publisher. It's a fun way to bring some of those stories with wherever you may roam, and an assortment of those videos can be viewed now in the player below...

Giveaway: Win a Scholastic LEGO Nonfiction Prize Pack!

We all know and love LEGO® for their iconic bricks and building sets, along with their growing collection of pop culture mashups, crossovers and fictional works like LEGO STAR WARS, The LEGO Movie, LEGO Dimensions and  the forthcoming The LEGO BATMAN Movie. While you know those, what you might not be familiar with is LEGO Nonfiction - the result of two powerhouse brands, LEGO and Scholastic, coming together to reinvent children's nonfiction publishing for kids ages 4-12. In this innovative new publishing program, LEGO models and minifigures are illustrated in fun and fantastic scenarios throughout as the first point of engagement for kids with real-world topics. This program represents a marriage of core values between LEGO and Scholastic: imagination, creativity, fun, and learning, as well as providing the most engaging, educational information for children. To celebrate the collaboration, THE ROCK FATHER™ Magazine has partnered with Scholastic to give readers a shot at winning a fantastic LEGO Nonfiction Prize Pack that includes the first four books in the collection, plus a $50 LEGO Gift Card!

Sans Blood, KISS Heads Back to Comics...

Written by

It's a famous story that dates back to the late 1970s - with members of KISS lending their own blood to the ink from which their first standalone comic would be printed. From their 1977 appearance in Howard the Duck #12 and 1978's Marvel Comics Super Special: KISS (the one with the blood), KISS has been in-and-out of print,  Now, nearly 40 years later, Dynamite Entertainment has revealed that KISS is coming back into the comic book realm.

We've been fans of Her Universe here at Rock Father HQ for quite awhile, I myself having ordered some items for The Rock Daughters from time to time. Now, after leading the charge in Fangirl fashion with styles from STAR WARS, MARVEL and more, Her Universe Press has issued what they're calling "the ultimate accessory" for Fangirls, just in-time for the summer convention season to get started - Fangirls: A Coloring Book for Girls Who Like Stuff. Geared toward "geeky girls who love comics, sci-fi, gaming, cosplay and everything else celebrated in the wonderful world of fandom," Fangirls is available now through Amazon.com and your local Barnes & Noble store.

I'd like to think that I know a thing or two about VOLTRON, and as someone that holds the 1984 version of the property in high regard and has seen numerous reboots try (and fail) to make a splash, I feel confident that we're on the cusp of a new golden era for the familiar Lion Force. With the Netflix Original Series, DreamWorks' VOLTRON: LEGENDARY DEFENDER streaming starting June 10, fans looking for new adventures will have a whole new chapter waiting for them in print: comic books from Lion Forge Comics - the folks who brought KNIGHT RIDER and MADBALLS into print. Releasing in July, the comic series expands the adventures of the paladins of Voltron with the first of a five-part series of VOLTRON: LEGENDARY DEFENDER comics. The mini-series is the first of several planned expansions of new storylines between seasons.
