ENGAGED COMMUNITY - Thanks to a supportive and active global community, Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls broke crowdfunding records. Volume 2 followed in 2017 and broke the record set by volume 1, making the series the highest funded publishing project in crowdfunding history. Since publication, the books have sold over 4 million copies and they have been translated into over 47 languages and are available worldwide. The Rebel Girls community counts on us to tell stories that help every girl in the world dream bigger, aim higher, and fight harder. STEM-ESTEEM - Most people who turn out to be scientists or engineers or mathematicians, first showed interest in those fields in elementary school. In fact, research shows that girls will not study or enter a career in STEM if they do not cultivate interests by age seven. It's incredibly rare to encounter female pioneers in the STEM space. Ada Lovelace is an excellent example of a role model whose ideas are approachable enough for a child to comprehend, and big enough to inspire. EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITIES - The book will include exercises and challenges for the young reader to learn the fundamental rules of coding. FULL-COLOR ILLUSTRATION - Unlike most chapter books for this age range, this title will incorporate at least ten full-color illustrations by Marina Muun. They will depict Ada at all ages, Victorian England, the mechanisms of the infamous difference machine, as well as Ada's incredible handwriting.
