Win 1 of 5 sets of Madam C.J. Walker Builds a Business and Ada Lovelace Cracks the Code, published by Rebel Girls
From the creators of the globally bestselling series, Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls, come two inspiring new beautifully illustrated books based on the lives of Madam C.J. Walker, America’s first self-made millionaire and Ada Lovelace, the British technology pioneer.
Madam C.J. Walker Builds a Business follows Sarah Breedlove Walker’s journey to becoming America’s first self-made millionaire, defeating the odds to found a beauty business whose products still dominate the black hair care industry today. Ada Lovelace Cracks the Code follows the story of British technology and computer science pioneer, Ada Lovelace, who jump-started the digital age nearly 200 years ago when she wrote what would become the world’s first programming language.
At a time when technology makes it easier for women to play a more active role globally, these books encourage entrepreneurial spirit in young minds, instilling lessons about the hard work, creativity and determination it takes to translate a vision into a reality. They also feature afterwords on each subject’s legacy, along with activities and challenges centred on entrepreneurship and coding respectively.
These are the first two titles in Rebel Girls’ new series of fictionalised biographies for readers aged six to nine, all of which tackle serious subject matter in a sensitive and imaginative way that will encourage conversations with adults.
We have 5 sets of Madam C.J. Walker Builds a Business and Ada Lovelace Cracks the Code to give away.
