Ada’s Ideas by Fiona Robinson (Abrams Young Readers)

cseiww8weaahkodIn this enthralling story, comes an exquisite interpretation of Ada Lovelace’s extraordinary life.

The daughter of the infamous poet Lord Byron and the mathematician Anne Millbanke, Ada was destined for great things.


So much so, she became the world’s first computer programmer, long before computers were even invented.

During her formative years, Ada’s mother took her away from her father, as she was worried she would become as wild as he was. Her mother was tough on Ada and she was given a strict routine from a very early age.

An incredible story of a woman from centuries ago, who contributed so much to our world today.

  1. Stunning art in this one! I adore Ada Byron Lovelace and the Thinking Machine by Laurie Wallmark and April Chu (Creston books) – and think I need this one as a companion!
