Rosie Revere, Engineer by Andrea Beaty, David Roberts

New York Times Bestseller

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. But when her contraption doesn’t fly but rather hovers for a moment and then crashes, Rosie deems the invention a failure. On the contrary, Aunt Rose insists that Rosie’s contraption was a raging success: you can only truly fail, she explains, if you quit.

From the powerhouse author-illustrator team of Iggy Peck, Architect comes Rosie Revere, Engineer, another charming, witty picture book about believing in yourself and pursuing your passion. Ada Twist, Scientist, the companion picture book featuring the next kid from Iggy Peck's class, is available in September 2016.

Praise for Rosie Revere, Engineer
"Comically detailed mixed-media illustrations that keep the mood light and emphasize Rosie’s creativity at every turn."
Publishers Weekly

"The detritus of Rosie’s collections is fascinating, from broken dolls and stuffed animals to nails, tools, pencils, old lamps and possibly an erector set. And cheddar-cheese spray."
Kirkus Reviews

"This celebration of creativity and perseverance is told through rhyming text, which gives momentum and steady pacing to a story, consistent with the celebration of its heroine, Rosie. She’s an imaginative thinker who hides her light under a bushel (well, really, the bed) after being laughed at for one of her inventions."

I bought Rosie Revere for my grandaughter, her dad is an engineer. I love the much needed message that it's OK to fail, that we can learn from our mistakes.

This book is about a girl who wants to become an engineer but her gizmos and gadgets keep failing, or the people she makes them for do not want them. She discovers that she is a good engineer because she makes a special invention for her aunt that works after she fixes it. I think other people would enjoy this book because it teaches a good lesson that failing is just another opportunity to figure out that you can try again and it will be okay. My favorite part was when Rosie got sad but she kept on trying and trying until she succeeded. I think it's important to read this book because it teaches young kids the lesson to not stay down, but to keep going until you succeed. review by Dylan K., age 6, GLAAM

This book has some historical content in addition to being a great read for children. The message of trying again, even after failure, is a message children need to take to heart.

My daughter is 2 and this is one of her favorite books.

The only true failure can come if you quit! This was even better than the first. I like that Rosie is very clearly in the class in Iggy Peck and of course you have to love a good Rosie the Riveter tie in! This one also felt a bit shorter so perhaps better for read-a-loud
