   Well executed in kindle
The book encourages children to be curious. The source of the stink was left for the readers to consider and discuss, and that's what I love about it. The kids and family can engage in the scientific process instead of being told an answer is true.

   Get all 3 in the series, they're a fun read!
I love these books. My girls enjoy the book series. I had previously bought Rosie Revere Engineer and I loved her. It was fun and informative to read it. I hope the author continues to write books for the kids in the class.

   Great Story, in Pristine Condition!
The book was rated very good by the seller, but it was new and unread. A nice surprise! The book is as enjoyable for the adult to read as it is for the children. It introduces some advanced vocabulary and has a lesson too, all wrapped in some of the best rhyming verse I've ever enjoyed. I'll never tire of this story even after 21 years. My son liked it. We will unwrap the meaning of words like hypothesis, havoc, mockingbirds, frazzled, high-flying, resulted, and pungent, who's use in the story are perfect. It makes you cry a little as you watch the young girl awaken, and then you discover that Mom and Dad are just as young. Thanks to David Roberts and David Beaty.

   We Love Little Miss Ada Twist
The little Miss. A great read is "The Scientist" by Ada Twist. This little Black girl is exploring her natural interests and is worth emulating. It is so empowering for kids of color to see themselves in print doing things that most people don't believe they can do. My little black girls have learned that determination, heart, and courage can lead them to uncover the mysteries of the world.

   Excellent Book
Great book! I bought this for my youngest sister, and will be buying for my own children as well. The morals of the story are great.

   Upper-Middle Class Propaganda
The whole series focuses on certain white-collar professions, and adds to the pressure for kids to achieve. It glorifies workaholic values and leaves out some of them. I guess when you read this to your child, you also might as well be harping on them. Don't you want to have an all-rounded career? What is wrong with you? Don't you want to be a good person? Will that make you happy? The jobs and trades that the vast majority of people actually work in are neither glamorous nor lead to parental bragging rights. I don't think those professions are good to write about. It makes my stomach turn when I see these books in a preschool.

   Science is for Girls!
My five year old daughter is a big fan of this book and I love the way it teaches her that she can be a scientist.

   One of my favorites, for the flow, the pictures, and the theme.
One of the books I like to read to my daughter is Ada Twist, because of the story and because she loves it. If you're on Just one more... for the fourth time, the sing-song nature of the rhyme makes it easy to plow through, but the pictures and story also lend themselves to a leisurely reading session filled with tons questions from the little one. Asking questing is important to the story, and I've found myself having to discuss and explain a lot of topics during the course of the book. A different world is brought about by this. Highly recommend this book and Rosie Revere, Engineer, which is also part of the series. It's great for boys and girls with an inquiring mind.

   a great book, fun pictures and positive message
My three year old and I both love this book. I don't have a complaint about the writing on the wall, it's a big no-no. There is a positive message in the book.
