Fans of the Bestselling Rosie Revere Picture Books Will Love the New Chapter Book Series, "The Questioneers'- Get the First Installment Now!

Disclosure: I was sent a review copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.

My girls are counting down the days until they can see Rosie Revere, Engineer brought to life in a fun new musical, which is touring theaters nationwide.  The musical will be making a stop at the Garde Center in CT on March 18th, and has many fans of this book series excited.  

Both of my girls own their own copies of  Rosie Revere, Engineer, Iggy Peck, Architect and Ada twist Scientist by Andrea Beaty, and read them all the time.  They also have a workbook and now chapter books based on the out-of-the-box thinking of Rosie Revere, who, like my girls, has big dreams and loves STEM learning.  I have used Rosie Revere in our homeschooling curriculum and was excited to learn that the folks at Abrams Books was releasing a new chapter book series for kids called "The Questioneers: Rosie Revere and the Raucous Riveters.  

Right around the holidays, we were sent the first book in the series, and this was the same time I told the girls I bought us tickets to the musical.  So, they were not only excited to read this new chapter book series, but knew I would be doing lesson plans for school around this book and the upcoming musical.  And, they were right!  I was able to print off a teacher's discussion guide right from the Abrams Books website to go along with this book, and  used it to with our reading.

We spent the whole month of January reading this book, a couple chapters at a time, and then coming together to discuss what we read, and our favorite parts.  Both of my girls are fans of Rosie Revere, and it was hard to put the book down, as they wanted to read it cover to cover in one sitting.  But, I wanted to do some of the fun activities that were included in discussion guide, to make it more fun and a true hands on learning experience for them.  You can print out and use the discussion guide found here with your kids --

As soon as my girls were done reading this book, they asked if there was a 2nd book out yet.  I looked online and found that the next book in this new chapter book series will not release until April. I did, however, pre-order two copies so that we will get them as soon as they arrive on shelves, so my girls can read and enjoy. The second book is titled, Ada Twist and the Perilous Pants: The Questioneers Book #2, if you want to pre-order this, along with the first book.

I could go on and on about this new chapter series, but if you have kids who are fans of Rosie Revere and Ada Twist books, then you know what to expect from this New York Times bestselling author.  Andrea Beaty doesn't disappoint in this all new series, and my girls can't wait to grow their collection of "The Questioneers."

Here is more about this recent release:
