Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent entrée into coding for kids! GREAT READ! I was looking for a starter book to introduce my 9 year old son (Josh) into the adventurous world of coding. The staff at Indigo! (Bay Street) recommended this book immediately. The text is incredibly intuitive for kids and organized into helpful lesson plans with a games and activities at the conclusion of each chapter. Josh worked through the 10 lessons over the course of a week and now is moving onto a second book. Additionally, I also recommend Scratch as a great first coding language for kids 8-12. The visualization of the lessons and actions such as debugging and data organization is very well explained. Josh and I highly recommend ! We are now onto our second book: (https://www.chapters.indigo.ca/en-ca/books/coding-games-in-scratch/9781465439352-item.html?ikwid=coding+for+kids&ikwsec=Home&ikwidx=7)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tremendous entrée into the adventurous world of coding for kids! GREAT READ I was looking for a great starter book for my 9 year old son to explore the world of coding. This was highly recommended by the staff at Indigo (Bay Street). Josh loved the book immediately. It is organized in an incredibly intuitive way for kids. Scratch as a language is a wonderful starter programming langue for kids 8-12, as the book suggests. The book is helpfully organized into lesson plans with accomplishments and games at the conclusion of each lesson. The book also includes helpful tips for parents to continue the learning experience beyond the text. We are now searching for our second lesson series and exploring coding classes for Josh to take this spring. Highly Recommend!

Editorial Reviews

"...programming teacher and prolific code-guide writer McManus (Web Design in Easy Steps, 2015, etc.) hits his stride in guiding readers through increasingly complicated code -- the farther into his subject matter he writes, the easier his prose is to follow." - Kirkus
