I bought this for my daughter, Ada, to get to know her namesake. It is, as far as I can tell, historically accurate and gives a beautiful overview of her life. Enough for an eight year old to absorb before she sits down with a chapter book later this year.

I loved the illustrations. The start of the story was confident and strong. Although the ending I'm sure is true, it was a let-down. For a book that should inspire girls this starts out very well, but ends on a bit of a flat note.

Fantastic book on how a great women excelled in understanding computing and who lived 100 years ago. A great book to impact young women as well as our society focuses more on STEM and encouraging young girls to pursue math and sciences.
