Ada Twist, Scientist

Fall 2017 Audio Book
Ages: 5 - 7 yrs.
CD Price: $14.99

The audio version of author Andrea Beaty's marvelous picture book about a little girl whose penchant for scientific inquiry from a very early age keeps her parents hopping, validates the mind-growing value of a young child's "how," "why," and "what" questions, while encouraging parents to nurture their offspring's natural curiosity about the world. The book is performed with verve by Bahni Turpin, a member of the Los Angeles-based Cornerstone Theater Company. The CD repeats Turpin's narration as a read-along, sounding a tone to signal the turn of a page. Added bonus for those following along in the book: the witty illustrations by artist David Roberts.
