Ada and the Number-Crunching Machine Read & Download Ø 4 æ This is Ada Although she might look like an ordinary little girl she’s about to change the worldAugusta Ada Byron better known as Ada Lovelace is an inuisitive child Like her clever mother she loves solving problems—big problems little problems and tricky complic Omplicated problems Ada invents crazy contraptions and reads all the books in the library of her father the poet Lord Byron; but most of all she loves to solve mathematical problems Together with her teacher the mathematician Charles Babbage Ada invents the w. This is one of the stronger kids' biographies about Ada Lovelace I've read It gives a brief biographical sketch in the main text including her association with Charles Babbage The biographical notes at the end though I think are much clear The main text and pictures sort of imply that Ada and Babbage built the Analytical Engine it was never built in its entirety The little note at the end talks about what Ada actually did with her code and translations so it's a good idea to read that part of the book tooThe illustrations are of a style that I'm not always a fan of But here they kind of work Although I was a bit confused by the crow that appears throughout; is it supposed to represent a fascination with bird flight or did she actually have a pet crowOverall this is a nice picture book biography about a pioneering woman Strong endnotes add interest I would recommend this book to kids interested in science or computers Thank you to NetGalley and NorthSouth Books for providing a digital ARC

Ada and the Number Crunching MachineOrld’s first computer program Her achievements made her a pioneer for women in the sciences Zoë Tucker’s words capture the adventurous life of Ada succinctly and debut picture book illustrator Rachel Katstaller’s art infuses Victorian London with humor. This was a short and cute read designed for little kids probably to be read to them by an adult who hopes they will take an interest in math science history biography computers or all of the above An adult who knows the Ada Lovelace story well might notice that it rather overstates and oversimplifies the case when it says that she changed the world with her mathematical footnotes It would be accurate to say that she imagined the change that might someday be possible Still kudos for introducing kids to a less well known historical figure especially a 19th century woman with some complicated emotional baggage but a first class brainThanks to NorthSouth Books and NetGalley for the advance review copy
