A wonderful book for little girls with enquiring minds that deserve so much more than a disney princess for a role model. My daughter loves this book and we have read it many times. The only downside is that the book is american and so is the language so some of the lines don't rhyme unless you say them in an american accent!
This book has been the star of the show in Book Week amongst our Infant departments. It supports Growth Mindset, equality issues, biography, history and sheer good story telling. It is wonderfully supported in its pictures. My mantra of 'Picture books should be read by all' has hit home with our parent body too, who have been busily enquiring after 'Rosie Revere' as their children have returned talking about it. It should be on every bookshelf,
My daughter (6) and I love this book. Smart and humourful with a really really important life lesson woven in. I really think every child should have this book. Lovely interesting illustrations with lots of funny details. A true classic. Really looking forward to their next book which I've pre-ordered.
Probably the best book for girls published in recent years. We have bought it for all our friends. The story is empowering and delightful. Girls can be awesome engineers. Girls can learn from failure. If, like us you're sick of princess tat - this is a welcome relief.
I actually couldn't say enough good things about this book, except perhaps one line when you have to use American pronunciation to make it rhyme, but you get over that for the message. This is a great book for young girls and/or anyone with an engineer parent :)
I am a female engineer, and bought this for my 3 year old extrovert god daughter, but the story has far more relevance to my nephew. As I read it to my son for the first time, I couldn’t help but cry! Wonderfully written, a great moral that failure is how we learn and evolve our ideas, perfect for perfectionists who won’t engage in case they get it wrong. Too advanced for my 3 year old, but good for slightly older children.
Our family absolutely adore this wonderfully illustrated book. It's beautifully written and has a rare message. That not only is it normal to fail but that failure helps build towards success if you just make sure you persevere. A female heroine who isn't dreaming of being rescued by a dashing Prince, Rosie Revere is just perfect.
Beautiful. The illustrations are absolutely delightful and the message is a change from the usual drivel so many books about girls seem to contain. Now high on the birthday-party-gift-list for other early primary aged children.
I bought this book as a gift for my friend's 3 year old daughter who loves cars and says she wants to be a mechanic when she grows up. I couldn't find any children's books about a mechanic but I loved this story about a girl engineer and it seemed to catch her imagination. Loved the illustrations.
