Book Review: Iggy Peck, Architect

Author: Andrea Beaty
Illustrator: David Roberts
Interest Level: Ages 4-9

About This Book: Meet Iggy Peck—creative, independent, and not afraid to express himself! Iggy has one passion: building. His parents are proud of his fabulous creations, though they’re sometimes surprised by his materials—who could forget the tower he built of dirty diapers? When his second-grade teacher declares her dislike of architecture, Iggy faces a challenge. He loves building too much to give it up! With Andrea Beaty’s irresistible rhyming text and David Roberts’s puckish illustrations, this book will charm creative kids everywhere, and amuse their sometimes bewildered parents.

Why It's On My Bookshelf: Such an awesome find! Iggy Peck is one of those characters I've been waiting for to share with my students. There seems to be a hole on my shelf in the career category. But what makes this book so special is he is faced with some criticism and a potential shutdown from an adult. There will always be people who might question your dream for yourself. Don't let that stand in your way. Such a great message. Love this story!
