For the Love of Books

Monday, August 31, 2020

Evening, y'all!  It's been a busy month in my neck of the woods.  We've been working on a ton of home improvement projects on top of school and playing nurse to a pet bunny that just underwent surgery.  So, I apologize for it being so quiet around here.  I have no shortage of inspiration or paper products with which to play.  It's just been one of those seasons of life.

Anyhow, if you'd like to stick around, I'd love to share a favorite of mine, with you all, for this month's For the Love of Books pick.  It was rhythmically written for children ages five to seven and happens to be one of eight books in a series, all of which encourage curiosity and perseverance, written by a #1 New York Times bestselling team.

Ada Twist, Scientist, written by Andrea Beaty and illustrated by David Roberts, tells the story of the making of a curious, young scientist.  Ada's first word, after climbing to the top of a grandfather clock in her home, was "Why?"  Shortly thereafter came "What?", "How?", and "When?"  She kept her parents and, in time, her teacher frazzled with a continual barrage of questions, not to mention the chaos that followed her search for the answers to those questions; until they could take it no longer.  Her parents sent Ada to the Thinking Chair.  By the time they calmed down and determined to do everything they could to aid Ada in her quest for answers, Ada had filled the wall by her chair with the never-ending thoughts racing through her head.  After all, "how could she resist?  It's all in the heart of a young scientist?"

Thanks so much for taking time out of your busy lives to stop by!  Happy reading, friends!
