- Roar Score: 5/5
There’s something about a good rhyming picture book that just hits the spot for me. And a rhyming picture book with a great message? All the better.
Look, I read a lot of picture books. Most of them are well written. Many of them are gorgeous. Some of them have sweet, memorable themes. But only a few of them are automatic winners right out of the gate.
If Ada Twist, Scientist were a person, I’d give her high-fives until her hand got sore. I’d bring her around to meet the extended family. I’d hug her until it became uncomfortable.
In other words, if any book deserves a full 5 out of 5, Ada Twist, Scientist is it.
