~I received Rosie Revere’s Big Project Book for Bold Engineers for the purpose of reviewing. Opinions and stories are my own.~
Rosie Revere’s Big Project Book for Bold Engineers is the activity companion book to Rosie Revere, Engineer. These books show girls doing really cool activities in math and science and this specific one focuses on engineering.
Embark on an adventure of personal creativity and invention with fan favorite Rosie Revere! This activity book features art from the picture book Rosie Revere, Engineer and will inspire young readers with activities of all kinds. Kids will have the chance to design a better bicycle, build a simple catapult, construct a solar oven, and more! This empowering activity book will teach problem-solving and creative-thinking skills crucial to STEM fields while also providing opportunities for its readers to try new things and, sometimes, to fail. As the picture book so brilliantly showed hundreds of thousands of young readers, flops are an inevitable part of success and something to be celebrated rather than feared. Created by Andrea Beaty and David Roberts, the same New York Times bestselling team who brought us Rosie Revere, Iggy Peck, and Ada Twist, this activity book will be perfect for old and new fans alike!
Kids will have the chance to:
- Learn about different types of engineers
- Design a better bicycle
- Build a simple catapult
- Celebrate fabulous flops
- Construct a solar oven
- And many more!
Andrea Beaty is the author of Iggy Peck, Architect and Rosie Revere, Engineer, among other children’s titles. She lives just outside Chicago. David Roberts has illustrated many children’s books, including Iggy Peck, Architect; Rosie Revere, Engineer; and Ada Twist, Scientist. He lives in London, where, when not drawing, he likes to make hats.
The book is 96 pages and just full of fun activities to help jump start their brain into a different way of thinking. They can write directly in the book and keep it as a sort of journal when they are finally done with it. It is geared for the age group kindergarten through 2nd but I feel it could even go a little higher than that. There is just so much to do and learn within these pages! I sure hope to see more girl Engineers in the future and books like these can help show the way!
