Available: 3 In stock

Lawdy, this is a beautiful book about the life, ideas, and work of the first computer scientist & programmer, Ada Lovelace.  Inspire your favorite little girl to exceed expectations and nurture her inquisitive mind. Equal parts picture book and biography, this story is great addition to your library. 

 

ABOUT THE BOOK -- SPOILERS AHEAD
Ada Lovelace wasn't satisfied with the limitations put on girls and women.(She lived from 1815–1852.)  Ada was the daughter of Lord Byron, a poet, and Anna Isabella Milbanke, a mathematician who was bound for greatness, too. 

"For visual learners, the illustrations (watercolors cut, arranged, and then photographed) lend the story a rhythmic movement that allows readers to better imagine the chugging of Lovelace's Analytical Engine. The paper-doll appearance of the cast of characters evokes a sense of play around an otherwise dense subject.

The text's lilting quality will stick with aural learners long after the book is over... Despite the easy tone, Robinson celebrates Lovelace for her powerful analytical mind (in spite of an overbearing mother, an absent father, and a restrictive social position). The author adeptly portrays how Lovelace's mathematical reasoning was largely unmatched during her time, as well as how her hopeful, expansive imagining of future incarnations of the Analytical Engine led directly to modern computers."
