From Superheroes and Star Wars to Web Design and Physics, I have the Ultimate List of Nerdy Baby Books for You or the Nerdy Parents you know!
The very first gift we got for Liam when I was pregnant perfectly cinched the sort of nerdy parents we would be and of course our hopes for a nerdy baby as well! My best friend sent along Baby Lit Book Pride & Prejudice, Star Wars Goodnight Darth Vader, and a Superhero in Training onesie. It was perfect and only the beginning of building a diverse baby book library that is filled with classics, new favorites, and nerdy baby books. Oh the nerdy baby books!
I feel so fortunate to be a mom in this day and age because there is so many wonderful nerdy baby items to choose from. 10 years ago, you would not be able to walk into a Target and buy DC Little People or Star Wars toddler clothes. It just didn’t exist.
In doing research for this post, I was both amazed at the options (just check out the physics baby book below and all the computer web design baby books!) and also disappointed by the areas that still need to be fleshed out. I could not find any Harry Potter baby books, and my heart broke! Seriously! There is a huge market here with the original Harry Potter kids becoming parents, and yes, I already tweeted at JK about this. There was also nothing for LOTR, GOT, video games, Pokemon, Dr Who, WOW, or Buffy. You might think this last one is a big stretch but I think The Littlest Slayer has BIG potential!
Having a big collection of nerdy baby books makes reading with Liam a ton of fun for us because we can share our love and interests with him from an early age. Nothing is sweeter than listening to Bryan read from a Star Wars book with Liam and hearing him insert his own anecdotes, feelings and iffy impersonations. It’s something we will all continue to bond over for years to come. Plus, imagining Darth Vader raising two kids on the Death Star is just fun!
Last side note before leaving you be to the Ultimate List of Nerdy Baby Books. Girls are often sorely lacking in regards to things like this and their additions were certainly more limited compared to male counterparts. However, you will find a couple Wonder Woman books and a couple Girl Power Super Hero Books. You will also find a Vader’s Little Princess as a counterpart to Darth Vader and Son. I try to add as many of these books onto Liam’s shelf as possible so it’s not uncommon for me to be reading him My First Book of Girl Power or Pride & Prejudice!
