Admire Ada: Ada Lovelace Cracks the Code

#AdaLovelaceCrackstheCode #NetGalley

Adults may know Ada Lovelace for her parentage or for the contributions that she made to Math and computing. Younger girls may not know know her but they will after they read this illustrated chapter book. It opens with a very real eight year old Ada who is brimming with curiosity, energy and imagination, qualities that the adults around her sometimes did not seem to appreciate at times.

Life improved for Ada once Miss Stamp arrived. Young readers will be lucky if they have such a good teacher in their lives. She helped Ada to take off, almost literally.

This book goes on to follow the arc of Ada’s life with its ups and downs, and her discoveries, achievements and accomplishments. Readers will discover that there is much to learn in unexpected places as when Ada visited a factory. Watch where this, along with meeting Mrs Somerville and Mr. Babbage take her.

I think that this book would make a fantastic addition to home and school libraries. It spectacularly shows that STEM is important and that women can both work and marry.

The end of the book has activities. There is also a QR code in this title. Accessing this will extend the experience of Ada’s story and the stories of other Rebel Girls. A nice extra for those who are interested.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
