Little People, Big Dreams Ada Lovelace by Mª Isabel Sánchez Vegara
Ada Lovelace was a British Mathematician and daughter of poet Lord Byron. She loved studying, inventing, mathematics, and dreaming of possibilities. She is considered the world's first computer programmer. Through an introduction to a famous mathematician named Charles Babbage, she learned of a big machine that could add sums together quicker than any human could called a calculator. The introduction to this idea inspired her to the idea that everything could be turned into a number and programmed into a machine, a code we still use today.
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.
