Ada Twist, Scientist

Ada Twist, Scientist

The creators of the New York Times bestselling picture books Rosie Revere, Engineer and Iggy Peck, Architect are back with a story about the power of curiosity in the hands of a child who is on a mission to use science to understand her world. Ada Twist, Scientist, from powerhouse team Andrea Beaty and David Roberts, is a celebration of STEM, perseverance, and passion.

Like her classmates, builder Iggy and inventor Rosie, scientist Ada, a character of color, has a boundless imagination and has always been hopelessly curious. Why are there pointy things stuck to a rose? Why are there hairs growing inside your nose? When her house fills with a horrific, toe-curling smell, Ada knows it’s up to her to find the source. What would you do with a problem like this? Not afraid of failure, Ada embarks on a fact-finding mission and conducts scientific experiments, all in the name of discovery. But, this time, her experiments lead to even more stink and get her into trouble!

    A winner for storytimes and one-on-one readings., September 6, 2016

    This review is from: Ada Twist, Scientist (Hardcover)
    Like her classmates Iggy Peck and Rosie Revere, Ada Twist is an unusual second grader. Ada is curious and full of questions. “Why are there pointy things stuck to a rose? Why are there hairs growing inside your nose?” All day, she peppers her parents with inquisitive questions.

    When a noxious smell fills her house, Ada sets out to use the scientific method to figure out what is behind that foul odor. But in her search for answers Ada also ends up scaring the family cat and annoying her brother and parents. It’s not easy pursuing scientific discovery, but luckily for Ada she has her family’s full support once they stop to think about everything this girl dynamo has already discovered in Ada Twist, Scientist (2016) by Andrea Beaty, illustrated by Dave Roberts.

    Beaty and Roberts continue their delightful series of companion pictures that began with Iggy Peck, Architect and Rosie Revere, Engineer.

    This time around Ada is inspired by scientists such as Marie Curie and, as her name suggests, Ada Lovelace. While I am very fond of this series, previous installments missed opportunities to include a more diverse cast of characters. The author and illustrator work to correct that here with Ada and her family. Ada is a thoughtful, intelligent, black girl and aspiring scientist–something we need to see more often in picture books (and other books for children and teens).

    While Ada encounters some pitfalls on her way to becoming a scientists she remains curious and persistent. This story includes rhyming text that rolls trippingly off the tongue and cartoon-like illustrations filled with details to draw readers into the story. Ada Twist, Scientist is a smart story that is sure to inspire many young scientists. A winner for storytimes and one-on-one readings. Recommended.

    Another great addition to the series, September 8, 2016

    This review is from: Ada Twist, Scientist (Hardcover)
    Another great addition to the series. I am giving it 4 stars, because Rosie Revere has absolutely captured my heart, but this one is also really great, thought the story doesn’t quite feel as fleshed out.
    A few things I love about it:
    1) It seems as though Ada may possibly be autistic or have Asperger’s. As the mom of a kid with autism, I really loved that Ada is a little bit different, and her parents have to adjust their parenting style and expectations to meet her needs. It’s great for kids to see that sometimes parents have to make changes too.
    2) I love the emphasis on a curious mind and asking lots of questions. I think a lot of times kids are discouraged from really asking lots of WHY because it annoys adults. Curiosity is what leads to great discoveries. I love Ada’s innovation in creating tools to test her scientific hypotheses.
    3) The style. Let’s face it – these books are just oozing with style. I love that the Eames chair makes a cameo appearance here.
    I hope Andrea Beaty writes lots more of these fantastic books.

    Falls a bit short of previous books in series, September 8, 2016

    This review is from: Ada Twist, Scientist (Hardcover)
    We love this series of books and our 5yo daughter loves them as well. We love them b/c there’s a focus on STEM and addresses insecurities a child may have about loving engineering and building and designing – AND Andrea Beaty is featuring non-traditional STEM kids which provides a character girls can see as themselves. I was very excited for this newest addition to Ms. Lila Greer’s 2nd grade class because the principal character is a young minority girl and she loves science! Unfortunately the book doesn’t read as easily as Iggy Peck or Rosie Revere. The story line is also pretty flat. And while the things that caused insecurities for Iggy and Rosie were basically in not being accepted, Ada’s passion has her being very messy – and writing all over the walls – and her parents are the ones that can’t accept it. In the end, her parents accept it but I didn’t get the sense that there was teaching in that. I’m all about accepting the curiosity and discovery and becoming a part of the love of research, but just think there’s a better way to express that than a character writing all over the walls? As with the previous books there are great illustrations and in the last page, you see the parents have gotten her a big long wheel of paper that she can write out to her heart’s content so parents can show their kids, that writing on the wall to satisfy the curiousity isn’t the BEST approach.

    All in all, it’s got the notions of the previous awesome stories, but this one falls a bit short. I still hope it does really well, b/c we can’t wait to see the next one! Something targeting computer programming perhaps? 🙂
