Hey there big girl,
I saw this on slashdot. (link) Slashdot is a good news aggregator.

This is the actual article, something I would read:
Here is a more official publication reference:
Teaching Graph Algorithms To Children Of All Ages, J. Paul Gibson. Presented at the Seventeenth Annual Conference on Innovation and Technology in Computer Science Education (ITiCSE 2012), Haifa, Israel, 3-5 July, pages 34 - 39, ISBN = 978-1-4503-1246-2
The conclusion was:
I want you to be able to succeed.
Love you much, MathGirl.
