Rosie Revere, Engineer by Andrea Beaty and David Roberts

We are in our 5th week of STEAM picture books with a classic selection.

Do you have an idea for an invention?

The Picture Book of the Week is Rosie Revere, Engineer, written by Andrea Beaty and illustrated by David Roberts.

About the Book:

Rosie Revere wants to be an engineer. She has a head start in the attic of her house as she built gadgets and gizmos out of trash. One day, Rosie builds a gadget for her uncle that doesn’t go as planned. He says he likes it, but she knows he doesn’t. Rosie feels bad and stops making her inventions until an unexpected and inspiring person shows up.

Writing Exercise:

Rosie gives up her dream when things don’t go as planned. Think about a time you failed at something. How did you feel? Write a letter to yourself as if you were Aunt Rose and inspire yourself to keep going.
