    4.5 stars; the Sibert committee will have fun with this one! ...

    The more pages I turned, the more I loved this book. At first I was worried it was another attempt to make a biography for children that would be too long and too dry to hold the attention of young children. And for preschoolers it might be too long. However, for children 5 and up, thi...

    Grace Hopper was a brilliant woman, mathematician, a Naval Admiral, and the Queen of Coding. Once upon a time computers knew two things: 0 and 1. Plus, to use a computer one had to be a scientist or a mathematician. Grace Hopper thought it would be better if computers could be used by ...

    Amazing biography, and I loved hearing the origin of a computer bug. ...

    Detailed illustrations, accessible text, and fantastic for teaching grit and growth mindset. The illustrations, combined with visually appealing "quotables," make this one a picture book to linger on and re-read. I love how the timeline in the back is color coded to differentiate betwe...

    This book made my almost-seven-year-old declare that Grace Hopper is his new favorite person. Can't argue with that: five stars. ...

    Grace Hopper: Queen of Computer Code by Laurie Wallmark is one of those great children?s non-fiction titles that has the right balance of information, engaging illustration, and humour. This inspirational book for kids tells the story of one of the most influential minds in computer ...

    Laurie Wallmark?s Grace Hopper: Queen of Computer Code portrays legendary computer programmer Grace Hopper as fun and feisty. More than anything, Wallmark?s picture book biography is an appealing story that will engage many young readers, not just the technology fans. The computer ...

    I really like this one two. It may be a bit difficult for picture book age, but hey, kids know a lot about computers and coding these days, so what do I know. "Grace Hopper: Queen of Computer Code" is great though because it reads as a story with interesting bits like the formation of ...

    I like the way this book details much of Grace Hopper's life without being too heavy on text; it is still enjoyable as a story. When using with students, I would give them an idea of the time period, rather than waiting until the end to find out. They might also need a little help real...

    A nicely-paced picture book biography of groundbreaking computer programmer Grace Hopper (responsible for, among other things, teaching computers to recognize words and naming a computer glitch a "bug" - a great little anecdote that's included in the story). Strengths include: Great f...

    Challenge-driven, Grace grew up having math and science as her favorite subjects. Exploring the world around her with great curiosity and problem-solving abilities, she created computer codes and she also coined the word "bug" to describe any computer glitches. This is a great book to ...

    Great book for STEAM. ...

    Ben is now fascinated by Grace Hopper because of this book. We reviewed binary coding because of this story, and he loved hearing about how the term "bugs" was invented in relation to computer coding. I think this was especially true because his father codes software for a living, so t...

    Great STEM biography about an amazing woman! ...

    Fantastic book celebrates the life of this amazing lady. Grace Hopper was intelligent, dedicated, professional, hardworking, and childfree! What an incredible icon for those who aspire to pursue their dreams, and further proof that a woman doesn't have to have kids in order to leave a ...

    There were a couple unnecessary put-downs of the 'traditional girl' (e.g. -- "While her schoolmates wore frilly dresses and learned to be young ladies, Grace studied math and science.") and the typeface for the main text wasn't integrated well with the illustrations, but the illustrati...

    How do you write a picture book biography about a woman pioneer in a complicated job whose contributions may be hard even for adults to fully understand? Laurie Wallmark has figured that daunting task out wonderfully. What she does is give young readers a real sense of Hopper's persona...

    This is how you do it. No mention of burning the steak or neglecting her children - in fact we never even learn she was married until the timeline in the back. Instead, we learn about Grace's accomplishments: joining the Navy at age 36, inventing modular coding, developing FLOW-MATIC (...

    4.5 stars; the Sibert committee will have fun with this one! ...

    The more pages I turned, the more I loved this book. At first I was worried it was another attempt to make a biography for children that would be too long and too dry to hold the attention of young children. And for preschoolers it might be too long. However, for children 5 and up, thi...

    Grace Hopper was a brilliant woman, mathematician, a Naval Admiral, and the Queen of Coding. Once upon a time computers knew two things: 0 and 1. Plus, to use a computer one had to be a scientist or a mathematician. Grace Hopper thought it would be better if computers could be used by ...

    Amazing biography, and I loved hearing the origin of a computer bug. ...

    Detailed illustrations, accessible text, and fantastic for teaching grit and growth mindset. The illustrations, combined with visually appealing "quotables," make this one a picture book to linger on and re-read. I love how the timeline in the back is color coded to differentiate betwe...

    This book made my almost-seven-year-old declare that Grace Hopper is his new favorite person. Can't argue with that: five stars. ...

    Grace Hopper: Queen of Computer Code by Laurie Wallmark is one of those great children?s non-fiction titles that has the right balance of information, engaging illustration, and humour. This inspirational book for kids tells the story of one of the most influential minds in computer ...

    Laurie Wallmark?s Grace Hopper: Queen of Computer Code portrays legendary computer programmer Grace Hopper as fun and feisty. More than anything, Wallmark?s picture book biography is an appealing story that will engage many young readers, not just the technology fans. The computer ...

    I really like this one two. It may be a bit difficult for picture book age, but hey, kids know a lot about computers and coding these days, so what do I know. "Grace Hopper: Queen of Computer Code" is great though because it reads as a story with interesting bits like the formation of ...

    I like the way this book details much of Grace Hopper's life without being too heavy on text; it is still enjoyable as a story. When using with students, I would give them an idea of the time period, rather than waiting until the end to find out. They might also need a little help real...

    A nicely-paced picture book biography of groundbreaking computer programmer Grace Hopper (responsible for, among other things, teaching computers to recognize words and naming a computer glitch a "bug" - a great little anecdote that's included in the story). Strengths include: Great f...

    Challenge-driven, Grace grew up having math and science as her favorite subjects. Exploring the world around her with great curiosity and problem-solving abilities, she created computer codes and she also coined the word "bug" to describe any computer glitches. This is a great book to ...

    Great book for STEAM. ...

    Ben is now fascinated by Grace Hopper because of this book. We reviewed binary coding because of this story, and he loved hearing about how the term "bugs" was invented in relation to computer coding. I think this was especially true because his father codes software for a living, so t...

    Great STEM biography about an amazing woman! ...

    Fantastic book celebrates the life of this amazing lady. Grace Hopper was intelligent, dedicated, professional, hardworking, and childfree! What an incredible icon for those who aspire to pursue their dreams, and further proof that a woman doesn't have to have kids in order to leave a ...

    Fascinating biography about a woman who really should be celebrated in the areas of math, science and technology! ...

    There were a couple unnecessary put-downs of the 'traditional girl' (e.g. -- "While her schoolmates wore frilly dresses and learned to be young ladies, Grace studied math and science.") and the typeface for the main text wasn't integrated well with the illustrations, but the illustrati...

    This book about Grace Hopper was a Biography. I loved this book especially because the illustrations were colorful and playful. Also, the book started off telling about Grace when she was a child, therefore, it gives children a character to relate to, she was not some idol on a bookshe...
