A hilarious, irreverent book about doing your own thing

Meet Iggy Peck—creative, independent, and not afraid to express himself! In the spirit of David Shannon’s No, David and Rosemary Wells’s Noisy Nora, Iggy Peck will delight readers looking for irreverent, inspired fun.

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.

 Also from the powerhouse author-illustrator team of Iggy Peck, Architect, is Rosie Revere, Engineer, a charming, witty picture book about believing in yourself and pursuing your passion. Ada Twist, Scientist, the companion picture book featuring the next kid from Iggy Peck's class, is available in September 2016.

I am in my 7th year of teaching and my second year with first graders. I teach in a low income-high special needs urban school. The only thing I love more than teaching and playing with my students every day is coming home to my wife and 2 children. I can't imagine doing anything other than teaching. I love trying new things in my classroom to make it the best place for students to play, learn, grow, and have fun.

why I requested this book

I can't wait to start some new inquiry and STEM projects with my class. This book will be a great jump starter for exploring new things in our classroom.
