    One thought on “Ada Lovelace”

    1. Whatever device you’re reading this review on, you have Ada Lovelace to thank for it. The child of poet Lord Byron and Lady Byron, Ada had big dreams. Although her mother tried to dissuade Ada from her passion of inventing and replace it with her own love of mathematics and logic, Ada was able to combine her mathematical talent with her dream.She was introduced to Charles Babbage who was working on a machine that could solve maths equations quicker than people could. Ada thought she could make [...]

    2. I highly recommend this series of books for anyone with young kids (or even an adult who wants a 5 min rundown on a woman who changed the world). Cute illustrations and written so all ages can understand.

    3. I am a self-proclaimed Ada Lovelace fangirl, and this was very cute and beautifully drawn. I really love this style of art, it's kind of colouring-in for Monet.Perfect for getting young girls interested in STEM.

    4. Ada Lovelace has been my introduction to the Little People, Big Dreams series, books that tell short stories of the lives of people who changed the world for the better. This is a preschool-level take on the life of Ada Lovelace. We learn about how different (and somewhat absent) her parents were, but that Ada found ways to exercise both her logical and imaginative sides. She was taught math and logic, which was unusual for girls in those days, and eventually met with inventor Charles Babbage, l [...]

    5. This series of books, "Little People, Big Dreams" is so wonderful. In introduces children, with very simple pictures and stories, to people they might never have heard of otherwise. In this case, Ada Lovelace is, as the book says, the first computer programmer, before their were even computers.She is someone who is cool to know about, and this book makes her easy to understand.And the illustrations are a delight. Here is one where she is trying to write the programming language.Thanks to Netgall [...]

    6. Am now going to go and read all of the other books in this series - the perfect introduction to these wonderful women! Every classroom and library should have a set!Ada Lovelace is an important aspirational figure because of what she achieved through combining maths and imagination and because of the obstacles she overcame to reach success, creating something which underpins so much of our technology today.Brilliant book!

    7. I so loved this book, the illustrations are just beautiful and the addition of a cat makes it magical. I really enjoyed the simple language and my girls were all inspired by the story, it's so important to identify the power of thinking and dreaming alongside hard work and determination.

    8. I received a DIGITAL Advance Reader Copy of this book from #NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    9. This is a wonderful and informative children's book about Ada Lovelace, the woman who came up with the process of computer coding. As a child, Ada was fascinated by the ideas of interesting inventions. As the daughter of a mother that was interested in mathematics, she was encouraged to learn math. The combination of her developing math skills and inventive ideas helped her as she worked alongside mathematician Charles Babbage, who was in the process of creating the calculator. Ada Lovelace then [...]

    10. 5 stars for this children's biography of Ada Lovelace.This is a very good concise children's biography of Ada Lovelace, widely regarded as the world's first computer programmer. Ada's life and achievements are told simply and clearly, and I like that there is an emphasis on the importance of 'dreaming' and cultivating the imagination as well as recognition of her studies and hard work. The illustration by Zafouko Yamamoto is delightful, and the presence of the cat Mrs Puff throughout the story i [...]

    11. Very short and sweet, but a great children's book nonetheless. This very short picture book tells the story of Ada Lovelace, 19th-century mathematician and daughter of famous Lord Byron. In spite of her famous parent, Ada is a force of nature in her own right and a perfect choice for a series focusing on inspirational women of history. Women in science during the 18th and 19th centuries is a particularly interest of mine and so I'm particularly happy to see her included. The illustration is abso [...]

    12. This book, which is an account of Ada Lovelace's life for young readers, was charming, accurate and inspiring. The illustrations were engaging and added to the story's narrative. Highly recommended for both girls and boys who will recognize that talent and imagination know no sexual or intellectual barriers. This book is part of a series on adults who can inspire young readers and thinkers. Please note that I reviewed an adult book on Ada Lovelace, Enchantress of Numbers, by Jennifer Chiaverini [...]

    13.

Highly Recommend [...]

    14. Ada Lovelace, written by Isabel Sanchez Vegara and illustrated by Zafouko Yamamoto was a sweet childrens picture book and one of a series of books in the Little People, Big Dreams series.      This book was designed to not only provide young readers with information about the invention of calculators but even moreso to inspire them to dream big, and work towards their goals.      Other titles in the series include Maya Angelou, Amelia Earhart, Marie Curie, Rosa Parks and a range of oth [...]

    15. A lovely short biography of Ada Lovelace the original inventor of computer code. The only annoying thing is that the author uses “maths” with an s. Yes there are multiple types of math but it just reads and sounds weird to say maths. Using the word mathematics sounds better in the plural.

    16. This inspiring children's books brings Ada Lovelace's life to readers of young ages, as they get an understanding of how this trailblazing woman did groundbreaking STEM work ages ago!

    17. This was beautiful! The illustration style is gorgeous and I actually would love to own copies of these books to read to my son when he's a little older. (Read 25th January 2018 but it's so short I'm not sure whether it should count towards my reading goal)

    18. A superb book about an absolutely fascinating woman!As an adult I really enjoyed the book - the images are brilliant and I loved learning about her life.I wish all biographies were this fun and interesting - great facts!

    19. 3/5 starsI received a free copy of this book on Netgalley for an honest review!This is a lovely nonfiction book giving a brief look at Ada Lovelace, and her involvement in shaping the technology we use today. Before going into this, I knew next to nothing about Ada besides her name- I feel this was a brilliant introduction, and I can see it being very valuable in encouraging young people, especially girls, in pursuing a career in STEM. The drawings are also really cute. I'll definitely be sugges [...]

    20. What a wonderful little book, from a wonderful series! There is a whole series of these charming little books on inspirational women, from Ada Lovelace to Amelia Earhart and Dian Fossey. Beautifully illustrated, and with a very simple text, they tell the story of amazing women and their achievements in (what was then) a man's world. A billion times better than the usual girls' storybooks about crappy Disney princesses waiting for their prince. Highly recommended!Thanks to the publisher for a dig [...]

    21. Loved this children’s book. Thanks to Netgalley for the digital edition in exchange for my honest review. I want to purchase this whole series for my future children. The illustrations are gorgeous, too.

    22. I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.A great child friendly introduction to Ada Lovelace. The art work was stunning and it would be a great read for any age. I was interested in the life of Ada as i knew she was connected to Babbage and coding the first computer, but this book opened up so much more about her to me.

    23. What a cute little book. I had not heard of Ada Lovelace nor heard of Little People, Big Dreams series prior to reading this book. This series contains books that all tell super short biographies of the lives of people who did really good things in this world.This is an early pre-k level book and take on the like of Ada Lovelace. We learn about her odd childhood, and her albeit mostly absent parents. She was smart and inventive and had a strong creative side. We learn that she actually developed [...]

    24. Little Leaders brings another great non-fiction book to the group with Ada Lovelace. The content is easy to read, engaging and fun for readers. Ada's story is captivating and inspiring. The layout is great with more factual information at the back.
