July 10, 2013 at 4:50 pm Nice group of things for them to explore—-I think a better wording for this is that you’re “exposing” them to these ideas rather than imposing. That’s what good parents do for their children. Reply Making it Lovely July 11, 2013 at 1:21 pm Oh, I’m just joking a bit with the whole ‘imposing’ thing. :) Reply Alisa July 10, 2013 at 8:14 pm We have Iggy Peck too! Such a cute one. Try “If I Built a Car” too; it’s similarly enjoyable with great illustration. Reply Making it Lovely July 11, 2013 at 1:23 pm Thanks for the recommendation! That looks perfect for August. Reply alyson beaton July 11, 2013 at 7:43 am Thank you for including us! What a nice selection!! Reply Making it Lovely July 11, 2013 at 1:23 pm Thanks for making such beautiful toys! Reply Amelia July 11, 2013 at 8:13 am They don’t like it, they can buy their own toys ;) Reply Making it Lovely July 11, 2013 at 1:21 pm Right? Stop slacking, quit your complaining, and buy your own toys, kids! Reply elizabeth b July 11, 2013 at 8:45 am Hi Nicole – just wondering what font you used for the numbering on this post. Reply Making it Lovely July 11, 2013 at 1:20 pm I used Eames Cover Numerals. Reply Debbie Thole July 11, 2013 at 12:27 pm Iggy Peck is one of my favorites. The kids like it, but I love it. Reply Making it Lovely July 11, 2013 at 1:21 pm Same here. Reply Andrea Beaty July 12, 2013 at 9:00 am Thank you for sharing IGGY PECK, ARCHITECT with your readers. I love your blog. It makes me wish my kids were not off at college so I could impose these awesome things upon them. :) Thank goodness for young nieces and nephews. I hope you enjoy ROSIE REVERE, ENGINEER this fall. She would be all over that hardwood tool workbench . . . as am I! Thanks. Reply Making it Lovely July 15, 2013 at 11:59 am Thank you for writing books that we are all excited about reading with our kids! Reply Emily July 12, 2013 at 12:17 pm I’ve never commented but often read your blog. The Iggy Peck, Architect book caught my eye – it will be perfect for the book-themed baby shower I am throwing for an architect friend. Thank you! Reply Sarah July 14, 2013 at 9:45 am I totally love Iggy and can’t wait for Rosie… another cute one that isn’t by the same author, but shows up on amazon when u look at these books is a book about a young audrey hepburn to encourage kids to follow their dreams. Super cute book. Leave a Reply Cancel reply This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed.
