Izzy Gizmo....An Inspiring, Determined & Fun New Character For Our Makers!

There's a new little maker on the block and her name is Izzy Gizmo!  
This wonderful new book from our friends at Peachtree Publishers is....

...A feisty tale of determination, ingenuity, and friendship, sure to capture the imaginations of aspiring young inventors.
Izzy Gizmo’s inventions are marvelous, magnificent—and they often malfunction.  But when she finds a crow with a broken wing, she just has to help!  Izzy tries again and again to build a new pair of wings, but nothing is working. And that makes Izzy really cross! Can Izzy overcome her failures?  Or is her friend destined to live as a crow who can’t fly?...
From the moment we open Izzy Gizmo, we are taken into the life of an inventive, creative, inspiring creator....

who doesn't give up and keeps on going through....
...lots of mishaps, trials and amazing celebrations of her creativity and determination.

I love how Izzy will show children to follow their wildest ideas and never give up as they dream up their own wonderful inventions too.  This will be the perfect picture book for any Makerspace and all ages.
On the Peachtree Publishers site, they have provided lots of great information and resources about Izzy Gizmo.  
I really love the Activity Sheets....
...especially this one that will help kids create their own gadget just like Izzy!  I cannot wait to use this with our students at Van Meter.
As we get ready to introduce Izzy Gizmo to our little makers this fall,
...I am printing off these adorable bookmarks that also function as a ruler!  You can find them here.
Don't miss this one from Pip Jones and Sara Ogilvie, friends!  I know Izzy will bring lots of happy, ideas, inspiration and fun to your library and classrooms too.
