From Andrea Beaty and David Roberts, the creators of the New York Times best-selling picture books "Iggy Peck, Architect" and "Rosie Revere, Engineer". The award-winning series is a favourite of teachers, parents and children around the world. "Ada Twist, Scientist" encourages children's natural interest in STEM subjects: Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
Inspired by renowned female scientists Ada Lovelace and Marie Curie, Andrea Beaty brings much-needed diversity to STEM education. Girls will find a terrific role model in Ada Twist, but challenging stereotypes about scientists offers valuable lessons for boys, too. "Ada Twist, Scientist" is geared towards a young school-age reader, but the picture book format makes it accessible to even the youngest audiences. Boys and girls of all ages will enjoy David Roberts' delightful illustrations, and the rhyming text is a pleasure for parents and grandparents to read aloud.
