Ada Twist, Scientist
by Andrea Beaty, illustrated by David Robert

A reading by Revolution Books volunteers. For 5 years and up. All welcome.

Ada Marie Twist is an African-American second grader who has always been curious. Why are there pointy things stuck to a rose? Why are there hairs growing inside your nose? When her house fills with a horrific, toe-curling smell, Ada knows it's up to her to find the source. What would you do with a problem like this?

childCHILDREN'S PROGRAMS at Revolution Books open the world and history to children... that promote curiosity and critical thinking... that value diversity and doing the right thing. For all ages -- everyone is welcome to explore.

Getting to know Bob Avakian

NCBecause of Bob Avakian and the work he has done over several decades, summing up the positive and negative experience of the communist revolution so far, and drawing from a broad range of human experience, there is a new synthesis of communism that has been brought forward — there really is a viable vision and strategy for a radically new, and much better, society and world, and there is the crucial leadership that is needed to carry forward the struggle toward that goal.
