Grade 2-4 - Hopper was one of only seven women to earn a Ph.D. from Yale between 1934 and 1937. She taught math at Vassar, and during World War II became a junior naval officer at 36 and worked on the Mark I computer, an early "giant calculator" that would change her life and lead to her work on the first electrical computer. She is described as a curious, ambitious, and thoughtful woman who cared a great deal about education and sharing knowledge with others. Black-and-white and full-color photographs appear on every spread, and the technical language is kept to a minimum. This kind of biography is important as a resource for students to understand the historical context of technology. An accessible and inspiring introduction to a computer pioneer. - Holly T. Sneeringer, University of Maryland, Baltimore County
