I wanted to love it, was so excited to see it, ordered two copies to gift it, but was disappointed.
It is cute. The family adjusts to their child's wild interests. I shouldn't compare this title to the other two, but Iggy Peck gets to save his whole class from the madness of ill-fortune. Rosie's purpose is at least clearly available with the flying machine. Ada is just going around making a mess and asking interesting questions.
-she's seen as slow at the beginning given she doesn't speak for 3 years
-she is put in time out by her family as a result of her experiments
-her science at school is described as "young Ada's chaos wrecked havoc at school."
I appreciate the attempts at loving a kid with the talent and interest in STEM that each of the 3 books illustrate, but, sadly, the 3 stories are not equal.
A few things I love about it:
1) It seems as though Ada may possibly be autistic or have Asperger's. As the mom of a kid with autism, I really loved that Ada is a little bit different, and her parents have to adjust their parenting style and expectations to meet her needs. It's great for kids to see that sometimes parents have to make changes too.
2) I love the emphasis on a curious mind and asking lots of questions. I think a lot of times kids are discouraged from really asking lots of WHY because it annoys adults. Curiosity is what leads to great discoveries. I love Ada's innovation in creating tools to test her scientific hypotheses.
3) The style. Let's face it - these books are just oozing with style. I love that the Eames chair makes a cameo appearance here.
I hope Andrea Beaty writes lots more of these fantastic books.
My kids favorite part (other than her great escape at 3) is the part where she starts to put the cat in the washer to freshen it up because it stinks. LOL... _hilarious_ in how wrong they know that is! & how much THEY'D like to try it out to see what would happen.....what kind of reaction will THEIR parents have?! Mmmhmmm.
Ada's parents are calm and while they discuss what should be done, Ada's natural curiosity gets her into another mess. I liked how throughout the book, her family allowed her the freedom to be true to interests and kept calm and found creative ways to honor her intense personality that worked for them all.
All in all, it's got the notions of the previous awesome stories, but this one falls a bit short. I still hope it does really well, b/c we can't wait to see the next one! Something targeting computer programming perhaps? :)
