The Lovereading4Kids comment
With its equal mix of quirky facts and puzzles to try, Lift-the-flap Computers and Coding provides a whole new technique for learning how computer coding runs. Not only will it help readers understand how coding works, it also answers questions as to why it works the way it does. The use of flaps and colourful cartoon-style illustrations helps bring a really difficult topic to a level children can master and many adults will find it useful too. Even binary is covered, and in a very straightforward way. It’s a great book, one that even an expert coders will enjoy! ~ Andrea Reece
36 million children have taken part in "hour of code" activities worldwide, and coding clubs are becoming an increasingly popular after-school activity. This book and the companion title - Coding for Beginners - are a fun and essential introduction to what can be sometimes still seen as an intimidating subject.
