Rosie Revere, Engineer
Rosie Revere 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. Her invention complete, Rosie attempts a test flight, but after a moment, the machine crashes to the ground. Discouraged, Rosie deems the invention a failure, but Aunt Rose insists that on the contrary, it was a raging success. You can only truly fail, she explains, if you quit. With beautiful, witty illustrations, Rosie Revere, Engineer, is a charming picture book about pursuing your passion and not giving up.
