    One thought on “Ada Lovelace, Poet of Science: The First Computer Programmer”

    1. Yes, there is a sudden mini-flood of Ada Lovelace biographies. Think of it as simply correcting a terrible oversight. And this is so far my favorite of the bunch.

    2. A fantastic biography of an amazing, but little-known, hero of STEM. The art is whimsical and her story is told in an orderly fashion.Included in the back are a glossary, notes from the author and a timeline of important dates in computer science.This book is a great way to introduce kids to the concept of computer programming.

    3. This is an informative biography for children to get a sense of what Ada Lovelace contributed. It is also a quality jumping off place for adults to begin learning about Lady Lovelace. I was stunned to learn that Ada Lovelace was the daughter of the rascally, if talented Lord Byron. Now, while I am going to go to work learning more about Lady Lovelace, my real hunger is to learn more about her mother.

    4. Review from my blog picturebookplaylist.wordpress:Where will booksellers keep all the amazing nonfiction books that are popping up? I recently read an article in Publishers Weekly which stated that “even before 2009 and the beginning of Common Core, some booksellers were seeing narrative non-fiction and information picture books take off.” It’s no wonder that with beautifully illustrated and well-written nonfiction books like Ada Lovelace Poet of Science that publishers and readers can’t [...]

    5. I'd never heard of Ada Lovelace before hearing of this book. It's kind of hard to fathom that she lived 200 years ago and is considered the first computer programmer. It was fascinating to read about her life and her work with Charles Babbage. This left me intrigued and wanting to know more. I'll probably read more about her. Stanley includes an author's note, a timeline of important events (about her life but also about computer programming and inventions related to programming), a bibliography [...]

    6. Nice picture book biography of Lord Byron's daughter Ada Lovelace, who in the 19th century wrote a translation of an article on Charles Babbage's Analytical Engine, the first computer--and in so doing she created the first computer program: step by step instructions for it to function. Sadly she died of cancer at age 36 and never wrote more. Illustrations are kind of goofy, cartoony, look a little like primitive paintings. Selected bibliography, brief author's note on how Ada's work was lost for [...]

    7. Loved this book. I had no idea who Ada Lovelace was prior to this read. Fascinating story about a young girl who goes against the mold. Very inspiring for young girls. This will find a permanent place on my shelf.

    8. My daughter brought this home to read to me. A great little book giving much overdue credit to the first computer programmer. I loved learning about her life and her contributions to STEM fields!

    9. I loved the illustrations. As a children's book I think it's fun with all the bright colors. I really like how you can see every stroke like the book was hand painted. It's a good intro to Ada Lovelace and inspirational to any child who gets to read it or have it read to them.

    10. Fun introduction to Ada Lovelace and her part in history. I do wish it had incorporated more of the endnotes into the text, but I can see why they weren't.

    11. This is my personal opinion and I have nothing negative to say about the author and illustrator. I did not care for this book at all. I felt that some of the words led the reader to assume misinformation and the illustration style is not my favorite. I am disappointed, I was eagerly awaiting the book to read, I really like a lot of Diane Stanley's work. I didn't care for this at all.

    12. For my final twin text I choose to pair my nonfiction book Ada Lovelace: The Poet of Science by Diane Stanley copyright 2016 with the fiction book Charlotte the Scientist Is Squished by Camille Andros copyright 2017. I would start by reading my fiction book, Charlotte the Scientist Is Squished. This book is about a rabbit named Charlotte. She feels like she is being squished by all of her siblings. Using the scientific method, she devises a plan to stop feeling so squished. In her first two atte [...]

    13. Recently, I am thrilled to acknowledge what I have learned as history has different perspectives and behind it. Much like historical fiction, biographies can sometimes tell me what I have missed in my educational experiences. The biography, Ada Lovelace, Poet of Science: The First Computer Programmer, teaches me about sound friendship and insight of a woman who contributes computer programing way before the first electronic computer is invented in 1946.Ana is a daughter of George Gordon Byron kn [...]

    14. **All reviews can be found at drhodgesreads**Ada Lovelace is getting a lot of love these days, and for good reason. She is credited with being one of the first computer programmers in history, and the first woman. YAY! I also did not know that she was the daughter of Lord Byron, who had quite the reputation with the ladies (which I did know). In this book, we learn about Ada Lovelace's life. This book begins by telling a little information about Ada's father and mother. Her father was Lord Byron [...]

    15. I would pair this with Rosie Revere, Engineer (Andrea Beaty 2013). The reason I would compare these two stories is because they are both about women who are fascinated with science. Rosie Revere is a fiction story about a child and Ada Lovelace is an autobiography about an actual scientist and first computer programmer. Both stories are about overcoming obstacles and failures and achieving your dreams. I would start by reading Rosie Revere, Engineer. I would have the students reflect for a minut [...]

    16. I choose this book as I really like Diane Stanley's work. I like how she discusses and quotes from primary sources in the body of the text. I think this book was different from other biographies she has written. I feel like it was written for a younger audience than her biographies written previously. Also the illustrations were in a different style than the past, less realistic, more cartoonish with watercolors, but I still liked it. It is a great introduction to Ada, but she still provided dep [...]

    17. 4.25I have read a similar book about Ada Lovelace, but I think I liked this one better as it was simplified. I am smart, and creative but the technical, math and science stuff blows my mind! But woman like Ada Lovelace probably did math in their head for fun and that is AWESOME!!I am currently reading a book about 1909 England Woman's suffrage and let me say this I AM SO SICK AND TIRED OF WOMEN NOT GETTING CREDIT FOR DOING AMAZING THINGS!!! Ada Lovelace, Grace Hopper all the ladies in the Hidden [...]

    18. I had never heard of Ada Lovelace before reading this book. With all the technology in the world that we just readily accept, it's refreshing to think about how it all started. This would be great to use with children to encourage wondering, experimenting, and creative thinking. Some of the name dropping, ie Charles Darwin, Charles Babbage, etc. will go over children's heads. It would have been nice to see of glossary of famous people for further research. The glossary at the end was certainly h [...]

    19. Biography of Ada Lovelace that I found to be really clear about what her contribution was and why her work was important. I also liked that the book emphasized her combination of training in science, engineering, and math and great imagination, starting from thinking about flying machines in childhood.It felt like the book was a little "not like other girls" in one place, but it does show other women having conversations that Ada enjoyed at the party at Babbage's house.Really whimsical illustrat [...]

    20. While this biography of Ada Lovelace, pioneering female scientist, could have been edited down a bit for clarity and concision, it was a whimsical telling of a fascinating historical tale: how Ada Lovelace, daughter of Lord Byron and Lady Byron (a scientific mind in and of herself), became the first person to envision how coding and computer programming could work, some hundred years before the first computer was even invented. Better for older readers, as the narrative is meandering and there a [...]

    21. Ada Lovelace, Poet of Science is a biography about the first computer programmer. The neat and engaging thing about this story is the pictures that are so detailed. Young students will love to look and admire the story of the first programmer. When reading this, it became almost an inspirational book to show students that they can create something on their own. One book feature that this had, which most don't, was the actual historical timeline at the end of the book with the bibliography. I thi [...]

    23. Ada Lovelace was the daughter of Lord Byron and her mother was a scientist who gave her daughter a world-class scientific education. Although she eventually married an earl she worked with Charles Babbage on an analytical engine. The Analytical engine used punched cards to direct the machine to compute mathematical calculationsey used the numbers of Bernoulli to code the machine. Basically she wrote the first computer program before a computer arrived a hundred years later. Nicely illustrated wi [...]

    24. I don't remember when I first learned of Ada Lovelace but she has such a fantastic story I was so excited that such young children will now get introduced to her! Even my engineering husband had never heard of her, so he was fascinated. And of course I'm doing my best to introduce such awesome women from history to my new son! My only complaint here was the illustrations - they just weren't my style. But it did such a great job outlining her story in such a short book, that I'll overlook it this [...]
