Funny Girl

Actress Lea Michele, who will star in Funny Girl on Broadway beginning September 6, recently offered her talents to the SAG-AFTRA Foundation's Storyline Online for its newest read-aloud of Rosie Revere, Engineer the beloved New York Times bestselling children's book about a young girl pursuing her passion of becoming an engineer.

Written by Andrea Beaty and illustrated by David Roberts, Rosie Revere, Engineer is tale of a girl and her creative innovations and aspirations. Alone in her room at night, Rosie constructs great inventions like hot dog dispensers, helium pants, and python-repelling cheese hats. This book celebrates persistence, as well as the merits that come from making mistakes, and SAG-AFTRA Foundation President Courtney B. Vance agrees that learning through one's own failures is an invaluable mindset to attain.

"There are so many wonderful life lessons to be learned in Rosie Revere, Engineer, like understanding that failure is an essential part of the process for engineers, inventors, and all human beings. It is only by learning how to face our fears and flop, that we can learn how to fly!" says Vance. "I want to thank Lea Michele for bringing this fantastic story to life for Storyline Online and for delivering the affirmative message that as long as you try, you can never fail."

An educational brand since 2001, Storyline Online now has over 850 million views worldwide, and with over 250 million of those views occurring since March 2020, Storyline Online proved to be an essential online literacy resource for tens of millions of families throughout the pandemic.
