A funny book to read to kids for a quick read. Definitely will get kids laughing. Can be a great example of poetry, observing how the author intentionally rhymes words in different ways and patterns and how they use the verses as part of the illustration to add more to the story. ( )

This was a really cute little book that teaches that it's always possible to follow your dreams no matter how old you are.

Iggy Peck loves to build. When he gets to second grade, his teacher makes it known that she hates tall buildings. Naturally, Iggy is crushed. However, a timely accident gives Iggy the opportunity to prove his metal, and his teacher is in for a lovely surprise.

Great way to inspire young minds to never give up on their goals. ( )

Iggy Peck, Architect is another fun science narrative book for younger students. I liked in this book of Beaty's we get a bit of a background into the teacher Miss Greer. To be honest, when picking this book up I didn't know how much science would be in it but was surprised to find Iggy Peck was engineering like Rosie Revere only he was building structures. Again, I loved how it showed ordinary objects being used for engineering showing students you don't need anything fancy to do science. I think this would be a fun book to read during an engineering unit where you could build bridges. I liked how it showed the whole class working together to build a bridge and how at the end Miss Greer let Iggy Peck teach the class about his passion. I would use this book most likley 2-5th ish grade. ( )

I love how this book rhymes! This playful story is about a boy who was destined to be an architect from a young age. Although his architectural aspirations got him into trouble with his grouchy teacher, he was determined to keep building with whatever materials he had. This illuminates the message that engineers don't need fancy materials and tools to build and design. At the end of the story, Iggy Peck must use his architectural knowledge to build a bridge and save his classmates on a field trip. Iggy Peck is unique and special and this story will empower other students to harness their own talents and never give up on their dreams. This book could be used prior to an engineering challenge to build a bridge. Students could try and build their own bridges after reading about the one Iggy Peck designed. The illustrations also made the book entertaining and fascinating. ( )
