Beautifully illustrated book about one of the founding figures of computing. Would be a great addition to a women's history month display--or a STEM one.

Ada Byron Lovelace is one of those women I think should always be taught about in school, and yet she rarely is. This new picture book biography of her is an intriguing read for kids and adults alike, and manages to be both informative and entertaining. The artwork is excellent, too!
