Way Back Wednesday ~ Iggy Peck, Architect – Andrea Beaty

This review was originally posted on February 1, 2010.

Creativity and self expression are celebrated in Iggy Peck, Architect.  Iggy Peck is a little boy who loves to build.  Part of the charm of his creations lies in the nontraditional building supplies he often utilizes.  When he reaches the second grade trouble strikes.  His spirit appears as though it will be broken as a result of his teacher who does not see a place for building in second grade.

A class trip quickly changes the view of his teacher Miss Lila Greer.  After the unexpected collapse of a bridge Iggy Peck is able to rally his classmates and build another which allows the class and Miss Greer to cross back over the stream and get back to school.  After the rescue, the importance of encouraging Iggy as well as the other students in class is recognized and Iggy become a weekly guest speaker who extols the merits of building.

Engaging pictures and clever use of rhyme makes this one a favorite!
