Abrams Books sent me the book to check out and is partnering with me for a giveaway!
Now that my Maggie is a full-fledged reader, we are always getting new books for her to read. I try to head to the library with the kids at least every other week so they can get new titles to read. By doing so, her reading skills have EXPLODED this year. She is reading so much faster and with much more confidence!
A few months ago we had the opportunity to check out the first book in The Questioneers series, Rosie Revere and the Raucous Riveters. She LOVED it! So, when I was contacted about promoting the newest book in the series, I didn’t hesitate to say yes! She was so excited when a copy of Ada Twist and the Perilous Pants arrived and read the entire book in just over 24 hours. I had to force her to put it down a few times so we could do other things!
I asked Maggie her thoughts on this newest book in the series and she said she loved it. When I asked her if book 1 or book 2 was her favorite, she told me that she liked them both equally and hopes the 3rd one comes out soon!
About The Questioneers
The Questioneers series is a celebration of STEM, perseverance, and passion. Like its characters, Iggy Peck, Rosie Revere, and Ada Twist, every budding architect, engineer, scientist, mathematician, and leader, will become inspired to solve everyday mysteries and come to think more critically about their world. Most importantly, they will learn that despite the inevitable difficulty in achieving success, they should always continue to “Read. Question. Think.”—and never give up on their dreams.
About the Ada Twist and the Perilous Pants – Book #2 in the Questioneers series
Ada Twist is the queen of questions. Like, why does hot coffee smell stronger than cold? What kind of birds live in her backyard? And, especially, why does her brother Arthur get so cranky when she borrows his stuff for experiments?
But Ada’s questions really come in handy when her friend Rosie Revere needs help. Rosie’s Uncle Ned has gotten carried away in his famous helium pants, and Ada needs some answers—fast!
How high can Uncle Ned float? Will he fly off into outer space? And, most important, how can they get him down? With the help of her fellow Questioneers Iggy Peck and Rosie Revere, her brother Arthur, and some new friends, Ada Twist is ready to save the day!
