    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.

      Oh, I’m just joking a bit with the whole ‘imposing’ thing. :)

    We have Iggy Peck too! Such a cute one. Try “If I Built a Car” too; it’s similarly enjoyable with great illustration.

    They don’t like it, they can buy their own toys ;)

      Right? Stop slacking, quit your complaining, and buy your own toys, kids!

    Hi Nicole – just wondering what font you used for the numbering on this post.

    Iggy Peck is one of my favorites. The kids like it, but I love it.

    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.

    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!

    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.
