This is the inventive story of Iggy, a passionate if not single minded architect. Iggy has been an architect from toddler hood, reusing and recycling diapers, boots, glue, underwear and fruit roll ups. Children will howl at the icky stuff and cheer for Iggy. Fantastic mixed media, fine use of graph paper. Super to use for an architecture lesson, recycling, children can create their own buildings, or find inspiration from the sharp collages.

Iggy is a second grader who makes buildings out of materials kids are around. But his second grade teacher discourages him from doing so until they go on a picnic and he needs to build a bridge to save his class. This is great for my lessons on problem/solution, perseverance, and on career day for those children who want to be builders or architects.

I bought this book for myself because of the illustrations. My grandchildren love the clever verse and the illustrations. They never tire of Iggy, who is true to himself and an inspiration.

We have a baby blog www.coolbabytips.com and i thought we recommended all the best kid books already for people who appreciate art and architecture. but this book blows them out of the water. it definitely needs to win some awards. my husband an i enjoyed it as much as our 4 yr old and we are both professional writers.

The rhymes are sooo good (aren't many new children's books that do this right) and the illustrations are really something special!!!

My 3 year old son fell in love with the story as he loves to build and we can see the empire state building from our home. I loved the illustrations, so modern and chic! It's one of my favorite gifts to give as well.
