Now out: Ada Lovelace and the Number-Crunching Machine

This book offers an excellent introduction to the achievements of Ada Lovelace, daughter of a mathematician and a poet. Her early years, the education that she had (when many girls did not), her interest in Math and work with Babbage are all covered in one easy to read package. By the way, the illustrations also add to the book as they reflect Ada’s personality. Get this one for a young reader you know who wants to be a big thinker with big ideas!

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the chance to read about Ada who worked on what later came to be known as the computer. All opinions are my own.
