**Digital ARC received from the publisher through Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review**

First of all, I should probably let it be known that I do not have any children. BUT, I am nerdy and I know a couple of children! (That sounded weird, um...)I know some nerdy parents who have children!
So I guess the question is, would I recommend this book to them? Eh. Maybe.
So basically, this book lays out different fandoms in each chapter and describes the show/book/comic/game and gives you an age ra

The synopsi, movie ratings,and character descriptions might be helpful to some but the crafts are absolutely awful.
I want to make it clear that I am not a parent, but I read this book out of sheer curiosity for I was a nerdy child (now a nerdy adult). Both of my parents were nerds. Mom was a Star Wars fan and Dad was a fan of a bunch fandoms.

This book is a quick guide for selected fandoms, because I felt this book could have been a multivolume creation. I was happy that a lot my favorites were in there, including Percy Jackson! I also want to try the book's version of Lembas Bread from LOTR, because it soun
So I wasn't expecting what I got with this book. I was expecting more of a biography talking about how the author introduced their nerdy loves to their kids.

Ugh…I was so disappointed in this book. I had really high hopes that this would be what it promised: ‘a parenting guide that will help you engage with your little ones with crafts, games and recipes based on their new nerdy interests!’ I’m a huge Star Wars, Harry Potter and Hunger Games fan so this book should have been right up my alley. Instead, it turned out to be an encyclopedia of nerdy characters and plot lines that any good ‘nerdy’ parent would already know!

The book covers the Star Wars,
