Girls don’t have to be pretty fairy princesses done up in beautiful gowns, waiting for their princes to come. As these picture books show, girls can be smart, tough and brave, and every girl is beautiful in her own, unique way.
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.
