Description

Meet Ada Lovelace, the British mathematician and daughter of poet Lord Byron. Part of the beloved Little People, BIG DREAMS series, this inspiring and informative little biography follows the colourful life of Lord Byron's daughter, from her early love of logic, to her plans for the world's first computer program.

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 moving book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical images and a detailed profile of the mathematician's life.

Little People, BIG DREAMS is a bestselling series of books and educational games that explore the lives of outstanding people, from designers and artists to scientists and activists. All of them achieved incredible things, yet each began life as a child with a dream.

The language and structure is simple enough for young readers, while a biographical timeline at the end of each book offers greater historical complexity" * Irish Times * 'Sumptuously illustrated hardbacks, they take the life stories of famous women in history and retell them in a child-friendly way' * Daily Mail * "Strikingly illustrated, they're superb first biographies for younger readers." * The Huffington Post *
