Staff Reviews


— Abrams

Girl Power! Ada Twist is a scientist right from birth, always observing the world around her. When she starts to talk, she's full of questions and is determined to explore and invent - sometimes wreaking havoc at home and school. It's fabulous that Ada is a GIRL scientist in a family of color. Rhyming text and vivid illustrations combine to make this pure fun! (This is Beaty's third book following Rosie Revere, Engineer and Iggy Peck, Architect.)

— Gail Cosgriff

Praise For…


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

— Kirkus

— NY Journal of Books

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

— School Library Journal

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