Overview

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.

Collect them all! Add these other STEM favorites from #1 New York Times bestselling team Andrea Beaty and David Roberts to your family library today!

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
