Staff Reviews

Born a true scientist, Ada Twist's first words, not spoken until age three, were "why" "when" and "how". Ada gets into her fair share of messes, but that's what scientists do! And while her parents may sometimes fall into exasperation, they never doubt her brilliance or fail to encourage her repeated requests of "Why?". Though they do stop her more risky experiments... like preventing her from finding out what will happen if she puts the family cat in the clothes dryer.

Praise For…

"Beaty delightfully advocates for girls in science in her now-trademark crisply rhyming text."

"Use this book to jumpstart conversations about scientists, girl scientists, gender roles, forming hypotheses, giftedness and childhood genius, and individual creativity. Or just use it for laughs on a lazy school day afternoon."

"A winner for storytime reading and for young children interested in STEM activities."

"Young Ada Twist and her nonstop intellect might just encourage readers to blaze trails of their own."
