Ada and the Number-Crunching Machine

She invents crazy contraptions, solves big sums, and reads all the books in the library.

Although she may look like an ordinary little girl, Ada Lovelace is about to change the world.

Zoë Tucker and Rachel Katstaller tell the amazing true story of a little girl who didn’t go to school, but grew up to create the world’s first computer program.

An impressively balanced mix of engaging description and important facts with a quick explanation of the gender politics of the time and information about Ada's legacy...Inspiring, feminist, and informative in equal parts.
