Summary

Have you heard about coding but don’t know what it’s all about? Do you want to teach your child to code but aren’t sure where to start? If so, this audiobook is for you! 

Coding has been described as "the new literacy". So many people want to learn to code, but many don’t actually know what coding is or where to start. Many believe that coding has to be done in front of a computer, when, in fact, the opposite is true. This book is a beginner’s guide to teach children the basic concepts of coding using fun offline and online activities to inspire your child away from a computer screen.  

Starting with information about what coding is and where we encounter it in our everyday lives, this book is aimed at parents and teachers who don’t necessarily consider themselves technologically minded. The activities and games are suitable to use for both at home on a one-to-one and based in a classroom setting. The games and lessons can easily be adapted to suit your needs and the interests of your child.  

Children absorb information better when they do hands-on activities that give them firsthand experience of a topic. With activities such as mazes, treasure hunts, patterning, and learning binary code, your child will learn to solve problems, think logically, and be creative, while at the same time improving their literacy and math skills without even realizing they are learning to code. 

It takes all the technical jargon and explains it in a way that is simple to understand, and even those who consider themselves "technophobes" will be able to teach their child basic coding concepts and have fun at the same time. No need to be afraid any longer. Now is the time to learn basic coding with this easy to follow, fun guide.

Good

Thanks to the author , there are solutions online. But I still think it explained things too much. Thus, costed too much reading for a simple concept.

Refreshing book

If you are looking for a reference - this is a good choice. It is not a text book or a learn how book - it is a reference.

Informative guide

This book is fantastic. It is for a beginner and talks you through uploading Python onto your computer, gives the theoretical background of the language, and walks you through a variety of activities. I'm using it in my school's coding club and the kids love it!

Happy scripting

The book is well laid out and looks like my 10 year old can understand it even though he couldn't do the install by himself. If you want to teach your kid one thing to get 'em excited, try the turtle (pen). He loves using that. Happy scripting!

highly recommand

The book starts out as many Dummies books do, with tips on using the contents. It has an overview, an explanation of the helpful icons the reader will see, and outside resources.
