The premise of the book is simply adorable and hilarious. Rosie Revere is precious and should be protected at any and all cost! She loves to build things trinkets, gizmos, and gadgets in secret – why in secret? Rosie was once enthusiastic about her inventions and showed it off to everyone and anyone, but one day, she built an invention for her favorite uncle, but he laughed at her and she curbed her passion in and only does it in secret. It wasn't until her great-great-aunt Rose (Rosie the Riveter) visits her and teaches her that the only failure is the failure to continue – to quit. Enter the Blue River Riveters. They have an emergency that they need Rosie’s help with. One of the riveters, June, is a painter and always participates in the Art-a-Go-Go. This year, though, she has both of her wrists in casts. How can she paint like that? It’s up to Rosie to build a solution. What do you do when you try something that doesn’t work the way you want? How do you feel, and what do you do? The main character Rosie is a creative and ambitious little engineer. She loves building machines from old gears, wires, and broken motors, and she gives her models hilarious names (Foolhardyflop, Creative Catastrophe, Magnificent Mess, etc.). Her inventions often fail, but Rosie never gives up. Her perseverance is really admirable. The Rosie Revere Engineer story, written by Andrea Beaty is a lovely book all about perseverance, the moral of the story is to never give up, and change the mindset of ‘I can’t’ or ‘This won’t work!’ to a more positive ‘I can’ or ‘Let's try!’ attitude.

An unexpected and worthwhile message. I kind of don't want to spoil it, because I wasn't expecting it, and when I came to it, the surprise made it all the better. Reminded me of the excellent The Art of Learning. These books are fun without being preachy and yet teach the kids something important. Do give these books a try. Engineers, women in science, feminism, local area, London, bridges, links to STEM subjects, design and technology, positive role models, problem solving, perseverance To give you a sneak peek into the story, Rosie Revere has big dreams of becoming a great engineer. She creates wonderful gadgets and gizmos, but only when no one is watching. She's kept her inventions a secret ever since she was very small, her uncle Zookeeper Fred laughed at the unique cheese hat she designed him to keep snakes at bay.Rosie Revere and the Raucous Riveters is the first in a unique and exciting series of chapter books for children, parents, and teachers who want to make STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) fun. Young boys and girls will love their time spent with Rosie Revere. They’ll be captivated by the story and colorful illustrations, and also learn about the passion and practicality of science (STEM). Spelling Seeds have been designed to complement Writing Roots by providing weekly, contextualised sequences of sessions for the teaching of spelling that include open-ended investigations and opportunities to practise and apply within meaningful and purposeful contexts, linked (where relevant) to other areas of the curriculum and a suggestion of how to extend the investigation into home learning.

There is a Spelling Seed session for every week of the associated Writing Root. Coverage: Common Exception Words Rosie Revere dreams of becoming a great engineer. She creates wonderful gadgets and gizmos - but only when no one is watching. She's kept her inventions a secret ever since, when she was very small, her uncle Zookeeper Fred laughed at the special cheese hat she designed him to keep snakes at bay. But then great-great-great aunt Rosie, in her red-and-white spotted headscarf, appears on the scene, and helps Rosie to understand that sometimes you've got to risk failure before you can find success. Totdat een overgroottante arriveert: je stelt jezelf doelen en die ga je dan halen.' Roza gaat weer aan de slag met de kaaskopter. Ze durft weer, valt èn staat weer op: doorzetten en het gaat lukken! Je haalt je doel, ga ervoor! 'Fout gaat het pas als je hebt opgegeven!' Now perhaps if Andrea Beaty's presented poetry had been a trifle less awkward and stumbling (and with that, also not so utterly frustratingly distracting) and if her oh so very much important messages had been less in one's proverbial face and thus not so maddeningly preachy (about being courageous, about not being afraid of making mistakes, about trying again and again if and when disasters do occur, and yes, these are indeed important lessons for EVERYONE), I might have actually enjoyed Rosie Revere, Engineer. I had a lot of fun reading “Rosie Revere and the Raucous Riveters”, the first chapter book in a new series, “The Questioneers”, by Andrea Beaty.Rosie Revere loves to help people solve their problems. That’s why she’s trying to invent something to help her Uncle Fred with his problem. He’s a zookeeper and all the snakes just seem to be drawn to him. He can’t keep them away. Rosie has gone through 6 generations of her Snakeaway idea, but still hasn’t found the answer. But that’s okay, because Rosie knows you only fail if you stop trying. We have Ada, who always questions things with What, Why, When and How and shows traits to be a scientist. Then we have Rosie who wants to be engineer. She tinkers and tries to come up with new inventions. There is Sofia, who shows signs that she will be an activist one day with her actions to create change in the society. There is also Iggy, who loves to build and hence wants to be nothing but an architect. A new book in the series is about Aaron, a dyslexic child who loves stories but can't differentiate written words. To tell his stories he takes the route of art. Roza ziet in allerlei weggegooide spullen en restmaterialen de onderdelen voor de wonderlijkste apparaten. Wie kan er een worstjes-op-brood-automaat of een kaashoed tegen slangen ontwerpen? Roza dus, maar ze verstopt haar uitvindingen. This book is an ode to the millions of women who worked in factories of all allied nations during the World War II, building airplanes, ships and tanks and making guns and bullets needed for the war effort. It’s very special for me, as my paternal grandmother was one of those women. The story is a great combination of funky inventions (e.g. SnakeAway, a snake-scaring machine), quirky characters (like Rosie’s great-great-aunt flying on a cheese-copter or her joyful friends, the Raucous Riveters, who built airplanes during the World War II), as well as great messages (dealing with pressure, the power of friendship, overcoming fears). In addition, the book pictures the real process of engineering: brainstorming, research, sketching ideas, design, making prototypes, testing and redesign based on performance.
