"Read it at bedtime (it's a quick read!), chuckle with your children, and send them to dreamland." --American Institute of Architects

Some kids sculpt sandcastles. Some make mud pies. Some construct great block towers. But none are better at building than Iggy Peck, who once erected a life-size replica of the Great Sphinx on his front lawn! It's too bad that few people appreciate Iggy's talent--certainly not his second-grade teacher, Miss Lila Greer. It looks as if Iggy will have to trade in his T-square for a box of crayons . . . until a fateful field trip proves just how useful a master builder can be.

A story told in verse, this is a book that shows the power of education and science. Iggy Peck is a child who once "built a great tower--in only an hour--with nothing but diapers and glue." The structured rhymes and lively illustrations fit the architectural theme, and the text uses absorbing details of Iggy's world to bring the tale to life. Each of Iggy's classmates has their own unique quality, implying the variety of personalities and potentials to be appreciated in any group of children.

Young readers will love their time spent with Iggy Peck. They'll love the story, colorful illustrations, and also learn about the passion and practicality of science (STEM).
