Synopsis

A Beginner's Guide to Our Digital World The Ultimate Guide to Our Digital World by Heather Lyons, Elizabeth Tweedale

This book will help budding young developers explore the fundamental elements of computer code: programming languages, algorithms, loops, variables, co-ordinates ...and what to do when things go wrong! You can then hop online to try out your new skills on the companion website. Once you've got to grips with coding, it's important to understand the world of computers - how pixels make pictures, how sound works in videos, and how to store files so you can find them later. Finally, you can't be a brilliant coder unless you know how to stay safe online. Learn about the Internet, how to keep your information private and how to surf the web safely. Kids Get Coding is a fantastic resource for children looking to get started with coding. The book contains practical on- and off-line activities that are easy to follow and fun to try on your own or with friends. Guiding young coders throughout is Data Duck - a computer-programming mastermind here to help with hints and tips! Kids Get Coding is written by Heather Lyons and Elizabeth Tweedale of blue{shift} - a company dedicated to teaching children to become active creators of technology.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.
