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.)
