With flaps to lift on every page and friendly little robots providing the explanations and information, this book will help anyone understand how computers work. It shows readers how much a part of our everyday life computers are, and takes them behind the scenes and inside the computer so that they can understand the many different actions that occur when you touch the keys or screen. It takes a look too at the history of computers and how they’ve changed over the years, and even looks into the future. The information is presented clearly and in such a fun and interactive way that children will hardly notice how much they’re learning. ~ Andrea Reece
