Fans of Iggy Peck, Architect and Rosie Revere, Engineer will be delighted at this third installment, Ada Twist, Scientist from author Andrea Beaty and illustrator David Roberts. Super-fans might even recognize Ada as she, Rosie, and Iggy are all classmates and each appears in the other’s book. Ada is curious. She’s an observer. And she wants to know “why?” She also wants to know “what, how, and when?” Her family encourages her investigations until one experiment goes too far. Nevertheless, Ada’s a thinker and cannot be stopped, and her family realizes that they must help, “because that’s what you do // when your kid has a passion and heart that is true.” Read this book aloud to best appreciate the poetry, and look closely at class pictures to see if you can predict who might be featured in Beaty and Roberts’s next book . . .
