Have you ever wanted to fly? If your answer is "yes," then you should read the next addition to the Yellowberry Book Club: Rosie Revere, Engineer, by Andrea Beaty!
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 begins 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 fal, she explains, if you quit.
Although failing may seem scary, Rosie inspires me that failure doesn't always have to be a bad thing; in fact, failing often times leads to growth! If I had been scared of failure when starting Yellowberry, the company may not be here today! We all need to listen to Aunt Rose's advice and follow your dreams!
