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.

A favourite with my nieces and nephews alike! We all love to rhyme along as Rosie realises her dreams and becomes a successful engineer. So much fun to read and a great lesson to be taken away!

I had fun reading this book to my 4-year-old daughter. Wonderful winks at Rosie the Riveter history, plus a STEM story with a girl at the center! Its message is an important one: failure is OK. In fact, it's what helps you succeed.

Great illustrations and a cute theme but the ending needs work. But I guess really young kids won't notice.
