Rosie Revere and the Raucous Riveters: The Questioneers
Andrea Beaty and David Roberts – the minds behind such wonderful picture books as Rosie Revere, Engineer; Iggy Peck, Architect; and Ada Twist, Scientist – now bring us this delightful chapter book for young readers. It’s the story of a little engineer, Rosie, and her latest challenging project – to create a device so that a friend, whose arms are in casts, is able to paint. The catch is there’s a deadline of two days! Championed by her creative family and supported by her buddies Iggy and Ada, Rosie is encouraged in her mission.
Just like any budding scientist, Rosie faces failure but she persists; brainstorming and recycling old ideas, developing and evaluating designs at each step until she finally succeeds!
This first book in a series is a must for the budding entrepreneur; short chapters with plentiful illustrations and an appendix with useful information guarantee engagement. Celebrating camaraderie, the scientific method and the importance of persistence, it’s a winner!
Highly recommended for boys and girls aged 7+.
