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!
"This ingenious spin-off of Beaty and Roberts’s Rosie Revere, Engineer aims to get children asking questions, finding treasure where others see trash, and dreaming up solutions for such real-world “problems” as figuring out how to open a door with one’s elbow... Games, profiles of inventors, and an all-around focus on pie-in-the-sky thinking add up to an activity book with substantial depth."— Publishers Weekly
