In the beginning Ada was slow to talk, but once she started, she was full of questions. Why are there pointy things stuck to a rose? Why are there hairs growing inside your nose? Ada sees problems that need solutions at every turn. Everything is question just waiting to be answered and so, using the scientific method, Ada performs her experiments and gets in a bit of trouble too.
Another wonderful book by Andrea Beaty that champions both diversity and girls in science. Ada is like so many young children, full of questions and burning with curiosity. I also love Ada's family, who is mystified at first, but supportive in the way that every budding scientist needs. This is such a wonderful book with such a broad audience. I kind of which I had read this before I bought all my nieces and nephews their birthday presents.
