Rosie Revere, Engineer

Staff Review: Rosie Revere, Engineer

"Rosie Revere, Engineer" by Andrea Beaty

Cover: 'Rosie Revere, Engineer'

Meet Rosie, the great-great-niece of the heroine Rosie the Riveter, who enjoys building different gadgets and gizmos. Rosie wants to become an engineer when she grows up! She is always trying to make new things, however when people laugh for joy at her inventions she mistakes that for people laughing at her inventions instead. Rosie wants to give up every time someone laughs or her ideas fail on the first try. Luckily she is related to Rosie the Riveter who celebrates her failures as opportunities to learn! This wonderful story is told in rhyming verse which makes it fun and easy to read. I especially loved the content of the story with it's strong female characters and "can do" attitude. My daughter was enthralled with the ideas captured in the pages! This is a great read for any adult or child that teaches the timeless adage that you can do anything!
