Todd Oldham: clothing and housewares designer extraordinaire, and now... Babysitting aide? Cart his new book, Kid Made Modern, ($16) along the next time you watch your nieces and nephews and you'll be rewarded with well-behaved, attentive kiddos who think you're the best aunt ever. Oldham presents mid-century modern crafts inspired by Marimekko, Eames, and Noguchi, with little bios on different designers and types of art so that the kids will (shhhh) learn as they're having fun. The results, we promise, will be totally worthy of refrigerator door real estate.
