Rosie may seem quiet during the day, but at night she's a brilliant inventor of gizmos and gadgets who dreams of becoming a great engineer. When her great-great-aunt Rose (Rosie the Riveter) comes for a visit and mentions her one unfinished goal--to fly--Rosie sets to work building a contraption to make her aunt's dream come true. But when her contraption doesn't fl y but rather hovers for a moment and then crashes, Rosie deems the invention a failure. On the contrary, Aunt Rose inisists that Rosie's contraption was a raging success. You can only truly fail, she explains, if you quit.

      Have you ever wanted to be a great engineer? This is a story about a little girl named Rosie Revere. She wanted to be a great engineer, but she was shy because her favorite Uncle the zookeeper, that she made a cheese hat for him to keep pythons off his head but he laugh till he cried. You will have to read the book to find out the rest. My favorite port is when she sold her great aunt Rosie.

        I love this book so so much!!!!!!! It is about book a kid who wants to be a engineer when she grows up. In the story she shared her inventions when she was little, but got shy about them when she grew older. I think the message in this story is ''Follow your dreams''. I hope you like it!!!!!!!
