Ada Lovelace - Little People, Big Dreams Picture Book
This charmingly illustrated hardback picture book is a fantastic way to acquaint young readers with Ada Lovelace.
Ada was the daughter of poet Lord Byron, although beyond her parentage, he had little influence on her life. It was her mother's love of mathematics that led to Ada being educated in that discipline. From early on, Ada displayed a love of logic and an aptitude for mathematics. She went on to become a mathematician and is regarded by many as the first computer programmer.
This delightful series (Little People, Big Dreams) introduces young readers to outstanding people, from designers and artists to scientists. All of them achieved incredible things, yet each began life as a child with a dream. At the back of this book there is a facts and photo section to support the story told (great for parents and older children hungry for a few more details).
Also in this series - Amelia Earhart, Emmeline Pankhurst, Agatha Christie, Maya Angelou, Coco Chanel and Frida Kahlo.
Recommended for children 5 - 8 years.
Written by Isabel Sanchez Vegara and illustrated by Zafouko Yamamoto.
