To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I just LOVE these books and so does my 6 year old daughter. She loves Iggy Peck - architect and Rosie Revere engineer .... cant wait for her to see this book for Christmas! We were driving through Sheffield city center the other day and she said 'wow' and pointed out a bizarre/modern building - I mentioned that an architect will have designed what the building looks like - she said 'I know mummy like iggy peck' I said that's correct and said that an engineer then helps to design how the building can be put together to meet the architects expectations and she said I know mummy like Rosie revere. Brilliant!
Phenomenal. This and Rosie Revere, Engineer are the two best children's books out there. The author is so refreshing in that there is a female lead in a STEM area. The word needs more authors, and more books like this.
Love it! Love it! Love it! Hurray to finally seeing some diversity in a storybook with a positive and supportive family structure. I love these books by Andrea Beaty as they have great messages and diverse, strong lead characters. Even though Ada never gets to the bottom of the smell the process by which she tries to discover it, is exactly how advances in science, technology and engineering occur - you question everything make mistakes and try again! The illustrations are beautiful with lots of clever detail - I enjoy looking at them just as much as reading the story - did anyone else spot the Eames lounge chair!
We have iggy peck and rosie revere. It is our least favourite of the three but still lovely in how it encourages children to question their surroundings. My three year old was concerned by one bit involving ada trying to wash her cat but we skip that page until she is old enough to not be worried.
