Starred Review:

Rosie, a Detroit Herstory

2018 INDIES Winner
Silver, Juvenile Nonfiction (Children's)

The story behind the iconic image of Rosie the Riveter unfolds in rhyming verse and colorful illustrations that convey the strength, bravery, diversity, and patriotism of the hardworking women on the home front during World War II. The automotive factories of Detroit were rededicated to the production of bombers, tanks, battleships, and bullets; a unique slice of Americana emerges, complete with a detailed historical timeline, glossary, and photographs of talented “Rosies” riveting, welding, drilling, and making history.
