Iggy Peck Architect

Texts and Tunes: Iggy Peck Architect

If there's one thing that most tots do well, it's building things up and tearing them down. Aside from giving them the literal building blocks to make their imaginations come alive, the quirky and delightful book Iggy Peck Architect ($11) will help them to see the positive side of being eccentric, creative, and persistent.

Appealing to elementary-age children, author Andrea Beaty tells a tale of a young boy who has always delighted in building creative structures — even a tower of dirty diapers! His biggest cheerleaders, his parents encourage his passion though his second-grade teacher hinders it. Quelling his constructive activities, Miss Greer won't allow Iggy to deploy his building antics in the classroom until . . . she and the class desperately need them on a field trip. From then on, Iggy is a local hero and applauded for his creative mind.
