Girls looking for encouragement and inspiration to be engineers will have fun with this fanciful, easy-breezy story that champions women and girls who like to build things. Rosie Revere and the Raucous Riveters: The Questioneers, Book 1 breaks down the various tasks of an engineer: brainstorming ideas, creating a design, building a test model, trying it out, and revising the design based on performance. Author Andrea Beaty also offers helpful solutions for the bumps and challenges kids might encounter as they build things: getting frustrated, failing, and worrying about all the things that could go wrong.

Rosie's a great model for girls interested in STEM careers. She's creative, has a can-do spirit, and welcomes help from her tight-knit, supportive group of friends and family. The short chapters, urgent challenge, and engaging illustrations make this a fun choice for the chapter book crowd.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
