My favorite children's book is Higglety Pigglety Pop! Or, There Must be More to Life by Maurice Sendak. It's not geeky at all. My youngling prefers the likes of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Harry Potter. To that end, I'm always on the lookout for books that are likely to interest geeky kids or perhaps geeky parents who want to introduce their children to geek culture.
Check out the TechRepublic gallery Children's books about Star Wars, science experiments, and space for reading suggestions for the youngling on your list. Please post your geeky children's book recommendations in the discussion.
