To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I really like books that are well illustrated and that have subtle messages (positive ones!). I also have Ada Twist, which I like better, but both are great. My son loves them so much that he wants both books read to him multiple times per day. I plan on getting the Rosie ones too in the near future.
I purchased 3 of Andrea Beaty's books and though enjoying each of them with my 4 year old granddaughter found this to be the best. The story takes Iggy Peck from infancy to grade 2 during which time his architectural interests and projects gain momentum to the dismay of those around him. His grade two teacher takes contriol restricting his building passion only to find it's value when she and the class need to be saved while on a field trip. My only concern, the teacher is initially portrayed in a very rigid controlling manner. Isn't it time to let let that stereotype go?
I was trying to source some interesting books for my baby and given that both mom and dad are architects, I thought this would be a perfect book. It has fabulous illustrations, storyline and Iggy is a wonderful character. I have bought a few of these for baby shower gifts because I loved the humour! "good gracious ignatious!"
We love these series of books (we also own "Rosie Revere, Engineer"). My 4 year old son said he wanted to be an "architect" and this was a great book to help him explore what that means. High recommend!
My kids (5 and 7) love this book, and so do I. I bought it as a gift for them and they asked me to read it to them seven times the first day. It is fun to read and has a great story. I love how Iggy's parents are supportive of his dream:)
This book is brilliantly written with a great rhyming scheme. It's humourous yet it sends a great message to kids to follow/to not give up their passions/interests. The illustrations are hilarious as well. Highly recommend this book!
