Book Synopsis

The beloved New York Times bestselling picture book about pursuing one's passion with persistence and learning to celebrate each failure on the road to achieving one's dreams.

Don't miss Rosie's further adventures--with her friends Iggy Peck and Ada Twist--in the instant New York Times bestseller Rosie Revere and the Raucous Riveters, an all-new chapter book starring The Questioneers!

Rosie Revere dreamed of becoming a great engineer. Where some people see rubbish, Rosie sees inspiration. Alone in her room at night, shy Rosie constructs great inventions from odds and ends. Hot dog dispensers, helium pants, python-repelling cheese hats: Rosie's gizmos would astound--if she ever let anyone see them.

Afraid of failure, she hides them away under her bed. Until a fateful visit from her great-great-aunt Rose (AKA Rosie the Riveter!), who shows her that the first flop isn't something to fear--it's something to celebrate. And you can only truly fail, if you quit.

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."

We loved this! It is so cute and helps kids to see that failure is a good thing and helps them improve. It is sweet, genuine, and gorgeous. A great book for any child's collection. Both our 2 and 4 year old love it.

My daughter brought this book home from school and I like the other reviewer, had tears in my eyes. My daughter is a first grader who asks a lot of questions, and loves to build, and trial and error of projects, much like this book. I have no doubt we have an engineer in the making and this books reminds kids that it's okay to try and try. Very encouraging!!
