Ada Twist Scientist
Ada Twist Scientist by Andrea Beaty and David Roberts
Like her classmates Iggy Peck and Rosie Revere, Ada Twist has always been hopelessly curious. Why are there pointy things stuck to a rose? Why are there hairs growing inside your nose? She embarks on fact-finding missions and conducts scientific experiments, all in the name of discovery. When her house fills with a horrific, toe-curling smell, Ada knows it s up to her to find the source. But, this time, her experiments lead to trouble.
A brilliant and beautiful rhyming book about supporting your child's curiosity, Ada Twist also responds brilliantly to the call for greater representation of girls - and girls of colour - in STEM subjects and industries (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).
