ROSIE REVERE, ENGINEER is a wonderful book filled with humor, delightful rhyming verse, and colorful, detailed watercolor and pen-and-ink illustrations. It has a message to impart, but it does so with a light touch and in the context of a good story with emotional ups and downs.

Young Rosie is confident and creative but gets hurt when well-meaning adults laugh at her inventions. Once she learns that mishaps on the road to invention don't mean she's a failure, she regains her belief in herself and is back at work, building gadgets and gizmos and following her dream to be "a great engineer."
