The Lovereading4Kids comment

Published in association with Young Rewired State, a worldwide community of digital-makers aged eighteen and under, this book sets out to teach children how to code, and to show them how exciting coding can be. By the end, children will have learned how to write a programme in the three most important programming languages: HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Designed as a game in which kids use their new coding skills to help characters Professor Bairstone and Dr Day protect the valuable Monk Diamond it's lots of fun, and there are clear step-by-step instructions, regular checklists and lots of opportunities to practise what you’ve learned. A practical, useful and well-thought-out guide. ~ Andrea Reece

Reviews

With no knowledge at all you could produce webpages in a matter of hours. You'll be writing code in a matter of minutes. The explanations are gloriously simple and straightforward and there are even online resources if you get stuck. The steps are very easy and you start seeing rewards straight away - there's no toiling away for hours only to find that there's still really nothing to see. This has been written by people who understand how children's minds work - and a lot of adults too! [...] It's all great stuff and I can't think of a better way to get kids started on coding. I just wish I'd had this sort of opportunity when I was nine! * The Bookbag * A hot topic is introduced in this fabulously informative textbook for junior coders (and adults looking for a simple introduction!) [...] Basic coding skills and clean step-by-step explanations make this a thorough workbook to help enthusiasts teach themselves an exciting new skill. * IBW Children's Book Guide, The Bookseller * This book goes into a lot more detail than many others I have seen, so it gives excellent coverage. * Parents in Touch * Learning is through completing six 'missions

've read, this would be a useful addition to your library, primary or secondary. * SLA *'
