Toys for little girls that inspire big dreams and STEM careers? American Girl delivers on this one, big time. Luciana Vega is an 11-year-old Chilean-American girl who dreams of being the first person to walk on Mars. And she's American Girl's 2018 Girl of the Year. Learn more about Luciana here


3. Luther (BBC) returning for 5th Season

One of my favorite dark, British detective series, Luther, starring the ever-so-dreamy Idris Elba, is coming back for one more season! The showrunners technically ended the series after season three, but came back to settle unfinished business for a two hour movie in 2016 (season four) and now a four-episode run for season five. Shooting just started January 10 so air date is slated for "late 2018." Can't wait. Read more here.


4. Riley the bug-cop of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston
Two of my favorite things in one lovely story: dogs and Boston. Riley, a Weimaraner puppy recently employed by the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, has been making national news for his strong nose and short tail that will work to keep the museum's artwork and books moth, beetle and silverfish free. Riley is a bit of experiment for the museum -- if he does a good job, other institutions may utilize pups similarly. The power of a dog's nose saves the day once again. Read more here
