Description

Science is the ultimate parenting tool. After all, it’s really all about observing, asking questions, solving problems, making mistakes, and trying again and again and again—just like being a mom or dad! Come along with Lynn Brunelle as she initiates you into the joys of geek-style parenting. A proud geek mom herself—and an Emmy-winning writer for the show Bill Nye, the Science Guy—Lynn has had a love of science from the time she was a child. When she had her own kids, science became like a friend she could lean on for support, helping her make sense of the joy, pain, and uncertainty of parenting. Join her as she infuses her days with science, and shares it, in all its geeky wonder, with her kids.

News & Reviews

“Lynn loves being a mom, and she loves science. She relays tale after tale of how she engages her kids in wonder after wonder of the world around them—and around all of us. Her science enriches their lives and saves her sanity. Mama Gone Geek will do the same for you.”—Bill Nye, the Science Guy

“A wonderfully hilarious romp through Lynn Brunelle’s world, complete with directions on how to turn the most awkward and smelly aspects of parenting into teaching moments. Mama Gone Geek is a memoir and a how-to book on its surface, but it is also—and more importantly so—a testament to the undying love, joy, faith, and protectiveness a mother feels for her family. Brunelle’s ability to see her world anew, even as she knows precisely how to describe it to her children, is refreshing, touching, and, ultimately, very gratifying. Brava!”—Garth Stein, author of The Art of Racing in the Rain

“Lynn Brunelle is the love child of Erma Bombeck and Mr. Wizard!”—Susan Wiggs, author of The Apple Orchard and The Beekeeper’s Ball

Mama Gone Geek is my favorite book of the year. Funny and touching. Every parent can relate to her stories. I’m buying it for all my friends.”—Suzanne Selfors, author of The Imaginary Veterinary series
