We're so excited that the series has been extended to this chapter book since we loved the picture books so much. The series is thoughtful and inclusive, and really makes it cool to be smart. I love the positive messages.
Only a few chapters in with my 7 and 5 year olds and it's great. I love the other books and this one has quite a few illustrations (always fabulous) but continues the really fun and self confidence instilling themes of the other books. Highly recommend for the young and old questioners in your life
Super excited to find this waiting for us when we got home today. It's a chapter book and the first in the series - I'm excited they are planning more. We love the Rosie Revere boiks and daught er is a big fan of anything engineering related. I absolutely love the diagrams, the poem at the end and the thoughtful notes. We really enjoyed reading it and can't wait for more. It's a nice step up from picture books to chapter books as there are still lots of pictures which help my daughter to focus and engage as she's quite visual.
We’ve been reading this together with my 8 year old girl and it is just so much fun. The female characters are beautifully depicted as funny, intelligent, bright and indeed raucous. Every girl should read this. The book is best suited for 6-8 year olds and it is a great book to own as it encourages the child to make her own engineering plans on the extra notebooks pages dotted through the book.
I am a big fan of Andrea Beaty’s picture book series, and was really excited when I heard a chapter book series was in the works. This book did not disappoint me. It is definitely and entry level chapter book for children in grades 2 or 3, but it is written very well that it will appeal to a wide age range. My 4th graders are excited to read it because they are familiar with the picture books. When they read it, some will probably be able to finish it in a day.
I love the story, and how failure and perseverance are honored not avoided. It has fun illustrations and journal entries throughout the story that are a fun aspect of this book. And I enjoyed Rosie Revere, Iggy Peck, and Ada Twist’s friendship being part of the book. And the new characters that were introduced were fun and interesting. Overall, a fun well-written book I look forward to the next addition in this series.
We fell in love with this series when Rosie Revere was first published & my child was first born. Iggy Peck came shortly before our next child & we’ve been hooked ever since. Now that I’ve got a voracious reader in 1st grade, we are lucky enough to get these!!! The stories are so good & are the perfect format to explore concepts of success and failure, trouble shooting and going back to the drawing board, inventing and reinventing and how the work of engineers impact the community & the individuals within it. I love The Riviters in this story as well as the kids. To tell two stories at once was great. My kids loved it and we’ve read it through several times. Please please please keep them coming Ms. B!!!
We totally love this series...Our son doesn't like chapter books, and with its perfect mix of text and pictures, this was a perfect introduction. Illustrations are as adorable and smart as before! The story is exciting, inspiring, and flows nicely, though I felt some lines were a bit repetitive and not on a par with the sharp and energetic language of the first three hard books. Regardless, a must have in every kid's library. Can't wait for Ada and Iggy chapter books to come out!
