Beaty writes prose-verse books that enlighten children about the history of famous men and women. Beaty is a NY Times Bestseller. Some characters include Rosie Revere, Iggy Peck and others.
Why do I love Rosie Revere Engineer? Because it teaches young girls that they can be great at math, science, and physics. That being a girl isn't always about princesses, hot pink, and flowers.
If you have children who love to read and love adventure, then you should pick this book up today. I bought mine at B&N. I inserted a link in the picture to Amazon, which offers it at a better price. You can find Iggy Peck here.
