Metro Parent's February 2014 Cover Shoot Outtakes

Get a peek at some of the pictures that didn't make the cut for this year's education issue. Drew, age 4, of Detroit is this month's CoverKid!

Here at Metro Parent, the month of February is all about education. And this month's cover – and CoverKid Drew, age 4, of Detroit who rocks a bowtie and megawatt smile – makes learning look like oh-so-much fun.

Inside this issue, read up on getting girls geeked about science, how to fill out the FAFSA, whether brain games really work and much school subjects. Plus, get tips on how to make doctor's visits less stressful for your kids, meet Marvel's first Muslim teen superhero and find out why eating peanuts and tree nuts during pregnancy may actually a good thing for your baby.

Flip through these outtakes from the cover shoot, and be sure to watch the Q&A video with local CoverKid Drew, too.
