I can't wait to see the final version with all of the additional drawings interspersed in this chapter book featuring the intelligent and uplifting Rose Revere.

In this story she meets her Aunt Rose and her friends who were riveters during World War II and they must help come up with a contraption to help save the day. Less STEM and more imagination and heart, it incorporates all of the perseverance we want in a middle grade to show that with teamwork, humor, and a bad of merry friends, anything

A nice little middle grade novel with a charming cast of characters and an intriguing plot. The plot isn't overly complicated but will challenge younger readers to use their imagination for creative problem solving and promote analytical and critical thinking skills. The message about not judging a book by its cover is conveyed subtly and without cheesiness that's often present in this genre. I enjoyed the illustrations and the further information provided at the back on valves and the riveters. ...more

Recommended to John by: Dr. Dani Kachorsky
This concept picture book revolves around the positive trait of persistence in planning and experimentation while pursuing desirable goals. It invites, with positively exemplary role models, girls into the STEM subject areas of study and achievement. Strictly speaking, it is also fantasy because the art work contradicts principles of physics while showing us the machinery built by a young child (Terrell A. Young 2020, p.103,148). This book is for all like to discover how our inventions function ...more

I was so excited to see that this will be a middle grade book series! This is super cute and a lot of fun. I'm a bookseller and I can't wait to put this in kids hands! I will say that you need to make sure kids have read the picture books. There are some things that are unclear if you're not already familiar with the material. ...more

After Beaty's illustrious rhyming PBs, this was kind of a disappointment. It's still fun and the illustrations are, of course, great--but the prose lacks that certain something, and I found the story distracting and unclear--with too much waffle/too many smoking guns at times, and too many uninteresting/unnecessary sub-threads. For me, the historical references are fascinating, but they would be lost on this age group, and I think their references were wedged too awkwardly into the narrative. Ma ...more

Rosie Revere, Iggy Peck, and Ada Twist now have a chapter book to appeal to older (yet still very young) readers. In a wink-wink nudge-nudge homage to Rosie's namesake, Rosie the Riveter, Rosie must help her aunt and her aunt's friends who were riveter. Can Rosie invent a contraption that will save the day? Read on to find out. ...more

I had a lot of fun reading “Rosie Revere and the Raucous Riveters”, the first chapter book in a new series, “The Questioneers”, by Andrea Beaty.

The story is a great combination of funky inventions (e.g. SnakeAway, a snake-scaring machine), quirky characters (like Rosie’s great-great-aunt flying on a cheese-copter or her joyful friends, the Raucous Riveters, who built airplanes during the World War II), as well as great messages (dealing with pressure, the power of friendship, overcoming fears).

I read Rosie Revere, Engineer a few years ago and enjoyed it. I saw this at the library and had to see what it was all about.

I loved this book. It's everything I loved about the Rosie Revere picture book with more detail. My only issue with the picture book was that it was a bit vague and felt rushed. I liked reading it, but I loved this chapter book format. So much more happened and you got to know the characters better. I also love that Ada Twis

My four year old son and I absolutely LOVE this book. The perfect accompaniment/transition from the picture book, "Rosie Revere, Engineer," I love how this early chapter books digs deeper into Rosie's life and process as a budding engineer. Further developing her friendships with Ada Twist and Iggy Peck, as well as the adults and mentors in her life, Rosie (like Ada) shows readers that failure is a path to success. My son, who is utterly obsessed with fans, pumps, wheels, and gears loves the dra ...more

“Sometimes, Rosie’s weirdest ideas made her think in a new way or solved tiny bits of a big problem.”

Rosie Revere loves to help people solve their problems. That’s why she’s trying to invent something to help her Uncle Fred with his problem. He’s a zookeeper and all the snakes just seem to be drawn to him. He can’t keep them away. Rosie has gone through 6 generations of her Snakeaway idea, but still hasn’t found the answer. But that’s okay, because Rosie knows you only fail if you stop trying.

Andrea Beaty's first book in The Questioneers Series, Rosie Revere and the Raucous Riveters follows Rosie, an inspiring engineer with her friends to form The Questioneers, a group that likes to solve problems and have fun. When her great great aunt and her friends, retired riveters from WWII, pose a challenge for the trio, it's up to Rosie to conquer failure, shame, and worst of all: lack of ideas.
The reason I picked this one for my jfic is that it fit all the criteria. It wa

Rosie Revere, Ada Twist, and Iggy Peck are the Questioneers, three kiddos who love STEM and love to ask questions.

In the first book of the series, Rosie agrees to design a contraption that will help a woman with broken wrist to paint. Like any good engineer, she brainstorms, draws diagrams, makes prototypes, tests all of her models, refines, then starts again. Her friends help her when she gets stuck.

Honestly, this book is almost perfect. The pictures are cute. I love all of the notes that Ros

Based on the popular picture book series about the engineer, the scientist and the architect. This is the easy chapter book version. The best thing about this series are the illustrations. Very cool black and white drawings with accents of red. There's also pages of graph paper where Rosie writes her own sketches and notes.

Rosie is the engineer. She loves the problem-solving process. Her great-great-aunt Rose introduces Rosie to the raucous riveters, a group of old women who still have a lot of

Wonderful! A great transition from the picture book to a chapter book format, with all the same magic intact. I loved the way the process of engineering (prototypes, failures, and tinkering) and information on rivets and valves were integrated into the story. David Roberts’ illustrations were spectacular as usual, with some little details (buttons, poster in Rosie’s room) that were perfect. And bravo to Andrea Beaty for including such a wonderful, diverse group of older ladies as characters (an ...more

Rosie Revere and the Raucous Riveters, the first in the The Questioneers series by Andrea Beaty, is adorable and inspirational. In the same style as the picture books that made Rosie, Ada, and Iggy famous for their creativity and innovation, the beginning chapter book series hold a lot of promise for encouraging young readers to be risk-takers, creative thinkers, and problem-solvers.

I highly recommend this series be included in school and classroom libraries serving children in grades 2-4.

This chapter book series is a worthy step up for the kids who loved the picture books about Rosie, Ada and Iggy. In this installment, Rosie gets to meet more of her Great Aunt Rose's fellow riveters and collaborate to help a friend. Girl power is riding high and the reader is reminded often that a failure is still a win and the breaks she takes to "Stop and Think." Love the additional info about valves to improve STEAM knowledge, the "About the Riveters" history details and finally the "Think Ab ...more
