Rosie Revere Engineer
We are continuing our celebration of Women’s History Month! This week we are sharing another amazing inspirational story titled, Rosie Revere Engineer written by Andrea Beaty illustrated by David Roberts.
Rosie Revere Engineer, is about a quiet little girl named Rosie. She is shy and keeps to herself at school but when she returns home she is a brilliant inventor with gizmos and gadgets galore. Her dreams of becoming an engineer are strong but when Rosie makes mistakes and people laugh she thinks becoming an engineer isn’t for her. When her great- great aunt Rosie (Rosie the Riveter) comes for a visit and mentions her one unfinished goal, to fly. Rosie sets to work to help her great-great aunt fulfill her dream. But, when her contraption doesn’t fly but hovers and crashes, Rosie accepts defeat on her invention and her own dreams. Aunt Rose schools Rosie on a thing or two. One, mistakes are just the building blocks to a better invention, and two, you can only truly fail if you quit.
This is a fun book filled with brilliant illustrations. However, it doesn’t stop there. This story will inspire all those who read it. Not one of us goes through life without making mistakes and possibly doubting ourselves because of it. This story brings a strong message for our children to learn. Mistakes happen so we can learn from them and improve, we can not succeed if we don’t try or if we quit. That is an important message for girls, boys and even adults to learn.
