Children will be utterly absorbed by this journey through the history of architecture, from the earliest mud huts to today's soaring towers. Chronologically arranged, this large-format book gives each iconic building its own double-page spread featuring an exquisite watercolour illustration and clearly written descriptions, facts, and features. These vibrantly detailed pages are filled with people, animals, and other objects that help bring the buildings to life. A detailed appendix includes a timeline, a world map that points out where each building can be found, and an extensive glossary. Children will enjoy poring over this book - and will come away with a fundamental understanding of not only the most common architectural terms, but of how the built world has evolved marvellously over time.

Iggy Peck, Architect

Beaty, Andrea
Iggy Peck has been building fabulous creations since he was two. His parents are proud of their son, though sometimes surprised by some of Iggy's inventive creations (like the tower he built out of used diapers). When a new second grade teacher declares her dislike of architecture, Iggy faces a challenge. He loves building too much to give it up!

The Three Little Pigs

Guarnaccia, Steven
The homes of the 3 pigs are signature homes of three architects (made out of scraps, glass and stone & concrete) and the interiors are furnished by the architects and their contemporaries. Not all the houses are going to protect the pigs from the wolf's huffing. But when one of the houses holds up, it's the wolf who's in for a surprise ending.
