Rosie Revere Engineer
ANDREA BEATY illustrated by DAVID ROBERTS
From the powerhouse author/illustrator team of Iggy Peck, Architect comes Rosie Revere, Engineer, another charming, witty picture book about pursuing your passion. Rosie may seem quiet during the day, but at night she's a brilliant inventor of gizmos and gadgets who dreams of becoming a great engineer.
When her Great, Great Aunt Rose (Rosie the Riveter) comes for a visit and mentions her one unfinished goal, to fly, Rosie sets to work building a contraption to make her aunt's dream come true. Her invention complete, Rosie attempts a test flight, but after a moment, the machine crashes to the ground. Discouraged, Rosie deems the invention a failure, but Aunt Rose insists that on the contrary, it was a raging success. You can only truly fail, she explains, if you quit. Reassured, Rosie returns to her engineering and inspires her classmates to join in the fun.
A lovely read for 3-6 year olds.
