Rosie Revere's Ideas

116 Words1 Page

Where some people see rubbish, Rosie Revere sees inspiration. Alone in her room at night, shy Rosie constructs great inventions from odds and ends. Hot dog dispensers, helium pants, python-repelling cheese hats. Rosie’s gizmos would astound—if she ever let anyone see them. Afraid of failure, she hides them away under her bed. Until a fateful visit from her great-great-aunt Rose, who shows her that a first flop isn’t something to fear—it’s something to celebrate. This book provoked an interesting discussion about dreaming big and to imagining things we can make, and to experiment, design, engineer, and build. The children designed their own machines using their imagination. Who knows, we may come across these in real life.
