Can you please cover Meteor MongoDB objectID, which is a string, vs MongoDB objectID, which is an object? When I seed data through meteor (e.g. via fixture.js), parent-child relationships work. However, when I seed the data directly in MongoDB (meteor mongo), parent-child relationships do not work in meteor even though it works in MongoDB. It looks like meteor is expecting the objectID to be a string. If it's not a string, it will not be able to use the objectID of the parent collection to find the child records. I could not find any info on this on the Web. It would be great if the book covers this topic.

Good point. I'll see if we can still get it into chapter 4 or if we get it into 10 somehow. But I agree, this is a topic worth mentioning.
