A STEM Picture Book

There is a strong STEM emphasis at my school and it starts in the early years. Here is a popular picture book that relates to science, technology, engineering, and math.

Iggy Peck has always wanted to be an architect, ever since he created a tower of dirty diapers. While his parents support his ambitions, his second grade teacher has no interest in his passion. Iggy is undeterred and ends up using his skills to save the day. 

Unless a family member is an architect, it's an unusual ambition for a small child, so this book is a fun introduction to what that job is. I also like that Iggy had his classmates working with him to collaborate on the final solution. I read and loved about Iggy's classmate, Rosie Revere, Engineer and am excited to check out Ada Twist, Scientist, the next book in the series.
