Dreaming in Code: Ada Byron Lovelace, Computer Pioneer
What’s the story of computer coding? Read Dreaming in Code: Ada Byron Lovelace, Computer Pioneer to find out! In the introduction, somebody draws a portrait of Ada. That’s because cameras weren’t invented yet! If cameras WERE invented in Ada’s time, we could see what Ada looked like. The book is written by Emily Arnold McCully. Did you know that Ada met Charles Babbage? Did you know that her mother called Ada “the Child”? (I think she didn’t think up nicknames for Ada!) Did you know that Ada REALLY wanted to write a book and call it Flyology? Did you even know that Sophia Frend recalled that Ada had “an exquisite appreciation of music”? (If Ada were around today, she could create a music game!) Read the story, Morning Glory, to find out! I love computer coding, so my mom told me to read this book. I really had a taste for coding, and I even went to a camp to learn more about it. I once read that Ada was the very first computer coder, so when I got this book, I was excited to learn more about her and felt like I could compare myself with her. Any kid interested in computer coding should read this book.
