From Batman to Charlie Bucket, from Meg Murry to the Venture Brothers, every hero of science fiction, heroic fantasy, or speculative literature is the product of parental influences. This collection of pithy mini essays and charming illustrations offers short, sweet, and deep thoughts about parenting as exemplified by the most memorable parent-child pairings- Vader and Luke, Spock and Sarek, Peter Parker and Aunt May, even Pinocchio and Gepetto. Earth's Mightiest Parents reveals the profound child-rearing advice (and mistakes) hidden in geek pop culture. What would Vader do? Now geek parents of all stripes can find out, using these life lessons to raise a next generation of their own.

I absolutely love this easy but right-on book, it gives you little segments of wisdom to share with children as we guide them through this difficult but exciting life as we know. I kinda want to purchase this book and keep as personal reference material to remind myself when I feel inadequate as a parent. In fact maybe I'll make this a baby shower gift for all new parents.
Seriously, great read!
