I've been looking forward to this book for months, and was so excited that I bought two copies.. one for my daughter and one for a gift. TERRIBLE!!! We loved the Ada and Rosie chapter books, both were very science and engineering based (respectively), and the girls used their skills to solve tangible problems. This Iggy book mentions a few styles of architecture, but otherwise has nothing to do with architecture or building (like when he built a bridge in Iggy Peck Architect). It is VERY heavy on ghosts and haunting (not cool in our Montessori (ie reality) based home). But worst of all, two characters die from, wait for it.. the 1918 Spanish Flu! And it goes on to say that "'People can die from the flu, but it's not as common,' said Ada, 'because scientists invented new medicines and vaccines. People used to die of all kinds of diseases like measles and flu. Vaccines changed that. Mr. Mc Clintock at the library said that millions of people around the world died from flue in 1918. MILLIONS!'" Now I have until morning to figure out how to tell my daughter we're not going to read the rest of the book, and until Sunday to find a new birthday gift for a friend.
