What Wee Read
Rosie Revere, Engineer by Andrea Beaty and illustrated by David Roberts
Hooray for a book about a girl who's an inventor! Curious and creative Rosie dreams of becoming an engineer – constantly creating new gizmos and gadgets – until her latest invention is a flop. Her great great Aunt Rose (aka Rosie the Riveter) teachers her that failures are part of the process – and that the only real failure is giving up. It's written in the same quirky rhyming style as our other favorite, Iggy Peck Architect, by the same author. Rosie ultimately keeps trying – and we hope inspires lots of little future engineers.
