Description

Ada Lovelace turned her powerful imagination into a vision of the future, predicting the impact of computers on human life. Lovelace had a unique education and embraced mathematics. She became one of the biggest believers in engineer Charles Babbage's ideas for calculation machines. This graphic biography shows how Lovelace helped spread awareness of what an early computer could do and how she became one of the first computer programmers.

Great introduction to the life and historical context of Ada Lovelace. This would be an excellent introduction for a young reader who is not yet up to the longer annotated graphic novel by Sydney Padua. It will spur questions and lay the foundation for more research into early computing history.

I learned so much in this book! I want a bunch of biographies done like this, it was so informative and entertaining.

This was so cute and honestly something I would read to my younger family. It was very cute and cozy. Highly recommend!

Loved this graphic novel. What an ingenious and fun way to convey history to kids! I've probably read fewer graphic novels than I can count on one hand, but the illustrations were fabulous and the content was very good.

Ada Lovelace and the Start of Computers (and the series that includes Galileo, Newton, Paseur, Avicenna, Darwin, Curie and Anning) is definitely going to be on my list to purchase for my young niece and nephew!

Thank you to NetGalley for introducing me to another new to me author. Story and art by Jordi Bayarri. Looks like the book was originally published in 2019 in other languages and possibly recently translated to English. Translation by Sofia Huitron Martinez.. Publisher for the English version is Graphic Universe - Minneapolis. Looks to be manufactured in USA - yea!

Very well done. Approximately 40 pages including further reading suggestions and page index.
