Andrea Beaty’s picture books encourage kids’ natural curiosity and inventiveness. In today’s tech-driven world, it’s more important than ever to get kids excited about Science, Technology, Engineering and Math as early as possible, and these are just the books to do it!
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.
