Rosie: Stronger than Steel by Lindsay Ward

I loved this book! It is a beautiful and inspiring tribute to the women who worked hard and sacrificed for the war effort.

The story is told from the perspective of Rosie, a tractor built by women in the US and sent to England to help with farming. Rosie is a brave and loyal machine which does whatever it takes to support the cause. She ploughs the land, hides from enemy planes, and even makes friends with the animals.

The illustrations are stunning and capture the mood and atmosphere of the time.

The book also includes historical notes and photos at the end, which provide more context and information about the real Rosies. This book is excellent for children and adults who want to learn more about this fascinating history chapter.

I highly recommend it!
