      Rosie Revere, Engineer by Andrea Beaty, illustrated by David Roberts. This is the sister book to Iggy Peck Architect. This one was given to us by a dear friend. It has a great message to kids not to give up if their first attempt does not succeed. Many kids are afraid to fail, and this book show that failures are to be celebrated as we learn from each one.

      Three cheers for Rosie Revere! by Andrea Beaty and David Roberts. A picture book full of inspiration: Rosie dreams of being an engineer. She loves collecting rubbish and creating contraptions. But people laugh at her creations and her emerging confidence is soon crushed. When Great Great Aunt Rose tells young Rosie how she built aeroplanes during the war, Rosie is once again inspired. But will Rosie’s engineering work this time? What if her plans fail?

    Dream Friends: The illustrations and beginning of the story reminded me a little of "My Neighbor Totoro". Overall, this story was a good segue into making new friends at a new school and the power and importance of imagination.

    I Had a Favorite Dress

    I have noticed in my many years as a childcare worker, and a now a parent, that children are deeply touched by the books they read. This is why I like to read them books that teach important life lessons. During the many years that I have been reading books to children, these have stood out as some of the very best.

    Ellington Was Not a Street by Kadir Nelson - 811.69 S52E - library.cedarvill...

    This is a great funny/scary kind of book for 4 or 5 year olds and up. The text is fairly simple, the paneled illustrations are a good intro to graphic novels, and the dark illustrations except where carrots are concerned makes it an easy I Spy scenario. The story kind of reminded me of Muncha Muncha Muncha! by Fleming towards the end where Jasper tries to keep the carrots IN and the farmer was trying to keep the rabbits OUT. The twist on the last page was a great surprised that I won't spoil.
