Rosie Revere, Engineer by Andrea Beaty

Review provided by OverDrive
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 fly but rather hovers for a moment and then crashes, Rosie deems the invention a failure. On the contrary, Aunt Rose insists that Rosie's contraption was a raging success: you can only truly fail, she explains, if you quit.

Outdoor Math by Emma AdBåge

Review provided by Hoopla
Fun and informative activities encourage kids to get outside, play with objects found in nature and learn about math along the way. By measuring worms, building snowmen and splashing in puddles, for example, kids ages 5 to 8 will learn about basic mathematic operations, shapes, time and more. All activities promote active living and an understanding of the natural world, while developing important character skills, such as teamwork and cooperation. Cross-curricular applications make Outdoor Math a strong institutional choice. Fun, quirky illustrations demonstrate each activity and show kids that learning about math can be all fun and games!
