Why You Need: Geek Mom
Whether you love geology or space, gardening or crafting, "Star Wars" or Superheroes, Geek Mom: Projects, Tips, and Adventures for Moms and Their 21st-Century Families is a fantastic guide to developing or sharing your nerdier passions with the kids in your life and having a whole lot of fun at the same time. A highly illustrated handbook created by the editors of the beloved GeekMom blog, it’s packed with ideas and inspirations to fuel wonder and imagination — things you can make, experiments you can do at home, games you can play. Each one has a handy key to help decide if it’s the right age or stage for your child. Importantly, alongside the activities, there are helpful tips for parents about raising kids in the digital age and encouraging both girls and boys to embrace their burgeoning curiosity and inner scientist. This is one book of ideas you’ll keep referring back to throughout your child’s development for family night fun, rainy day crafts, STEM projects, and even homework help. There’s something here for every budget, age, and kind of parent — mathlete, word-nerd, or maker faire-y — and when we see a book that includes a piece on “How to Get Your Kids to Make Supper,” we are IN!
