Strong Girl Picture Books
Rosie wants to be an engineer, but when her uncle laughs at her invention, she gives up. It takes some encouragement from her great-great-aunt (Rosie the Riveter) to get her back in action. Great message about perseverance that I should listen to.
Now I want to check out the author's other book, Iggy Peck, Architect.
Better than the story are the illustrations by Julie Morstad. They are in muted colors and feature so much beautiful snow. I know that young ballerinas will spend ages poring over the different costumes and deciding which they like best. Although it's a picture book, it feels elegant and mature and is worth including in a middle grade class library.
