Ethan Gilsdorf put together a list of books for your most geeky friend or family member, and he’s talking the video game, dungeons and dragons, dice-rolling crowd. I’ve included his suggestions here and added my own — these are more for parents who like data, science and research about how their little ones grow.
If you’re hitting the book store for a mom or dad who fits either description, check these ideas out:
Here are the top 5 on Gilsdorf’s list:
I’m likely to try one of these for my husband this year. He also included Geek Dad, which we love.
And here are 3 of my favorite nerdy books for parents:
1. What’s Going on in There: How the brain and mind develop in the first five years of life.
2. The Philosophical Baby: What children’s minds tell us about truth, love, and the meaning of life.
3. NurtureShock: New thinking about children.
