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. Making it Lovely July 11, 2013 at 1:21 pm Oh, I’m just joking a bit with the whole ‘imposing’ thing. :) 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. Making it Lovely July 11, 2013 at 1:23 pm Thanks for the recommendation! That looks perfect for August. alyson beaton July 11, 2013 at 7:43 am Thank you for including us! What a nice selection!! Making it Lovely July 11, 2013 at 1:23 pm Thanks for making such beautiful toys! Amelia July 11, 2013 at 8:13 am They don’t like it, they can buy their own toys ;) Making it Lovely July 11, 2013 at 1:21 pm Right? Stop slacking, quit your complaining, and buy your own toys, kids! elizabeth b July 11, 2013 at 8:45 am Hi Nicole – just wondering what font you used for the numbering on this post. Making it Lovely July 11, 2013 at 1:20 pm I used Eames Cover Numerals. Debbie Thole July 11, 2013 at 12:27 pm Iggy Peck is one of my favorites. The kids like it, but I love it. Making it Lovely July 11, 2013 at 1:21 pm Same here. 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. 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! 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! 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.
