REVIEW by Tash Cerny
My niece is incredibly imaginative! I love that she thinks so wildly out of the box, and I never want her to limit herself.
Just the other day she was helping me look for my keys, and while I was rummaging through all the typical places I thought I might find them – my purse, the car, my jacket pockets – you know where she ultimately found them? The freezer.
Because she had thought to look in all the places I never would have imagined I’d leave a set of keys.
If you’ve got a little creator and imaginative thinker in your life like me, Rosie Revere, Engineer is an absolute must-have for your shelves.
A book about facing your doubts, judgement, and ultimately persevering through failure, Rosie Revere, Engineer will bolster your child’s confidence and motivate them to focus on all of the great qualities of their inventive spirit.
At 30 pages, Rosie Revere, Engineer is full of fun illustrations and a beautiful lesson about finding success through failure. Not only will your child be intrigued by Rosie’s inventive imagination, but the book also makes a great introduction to STEM field careers.
Demonstrating a world of creative possibilities, Rosie Revere, Engineer follows a young girl, Rosie, as she builds incredible inventions for her family that just don’t work the way they’re supposed to.
After nearly giving up from her discouraging failures, with some encouragement from her favorite aunt, she learns that success is created through failure and perseverance.
Your child will love the bright, colorful pages, as well as Rosie’s crazy and fun “inventions”.
Author Andrea Beaty has created a rhythmic and fun rhyme scheme that is sure to make every reading extra fun for child and parent alike. If that wasn’t enough, illustrator David Roberts has included illustrations that introduce readers to historic female inventors and strong women leaders, making every reading truly inspirational.
If you’re looking for a wonderful way to boost your child’s imagination and confidence while introducing the concept of perseverance and science-based aspirations, Rosie Revere, Engineer is a must-have!
