A favourite with my nieces and nephews alike! We all love to rhyme along as Rosie realises her dreams and becomes a successful engineer. So much fun to read and a great lesson to be taken away!

I had fun reading this book to my 4-year-old daughter. Wonderful winks at Rosie the Riveter history, plus a STEM story with a girl at the center! Its message is an important one: failure is OK. In fact, it's what helps you succeed.

Great illustrations and a cute theme but the ending needs work. But I guess really young kids won't notice.
