Little People Big Dreams: Ada Lovelace
As a child, Ada had a big imagination and a talent for mathematics. She grew up in a noble household in England, where she dedicated herself to studying. Her work with the famous inventor, Charles Babbage, on a very early kind of computer made her the world's first computer programmer. This inspirational book features stylized illustrations and additional facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical images and a detailed profile of the mathematician's life!
