5.0 out of 5 stars At last 1 Feb. 2015
Format:Flexibound
As someone who writes code for a living, I've been trying to find a way to get my 8 year old some kind of exposure to it. My own attempts having fallen flat, this book with its game-based approach and lots of fun ideas and bright colours is perfect. She is hooked (in a good way).

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book 15 Feb. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Buy hard copy not digital it is much easier to read on paper form
You cannot make text bigger on kindle nor change the background colour if you have sight problems. For some reason my kindle fire won't allow me to zoom in and out on this book although it will on other instructional books.
I bought this book for myself I'm 54 and wanted to learn code and am not ashamed to start at the most basic level possible the book seems to be a good introduction and .much better than some of the simpler books aimed at the adult market that frankly were more talk than action.

I bought this book initially for my son (who is 8) who really likes computers and talked about doing computer programming. It is a fantastic book for those starting at the beginning. It's really easy to follow and 'Scratch' the programme they start off with is easy and fun. I have also bought this for a friend's childs birthday and he told my son that it was one of his best presents!

My 7 year old son has just started reading this. He's found it really exciting and can not wait to start coding. The language used in the book is simple to understand yet engaging.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! Easy to get started 19 July 2015
Format:Flexibound|Verified Purchase
This is a great book that my daughter really enjoyed working through. The layout is very easy to follow and straightforward to apply. I am not a computer programmer but I know some basic C programming. I was looking for a way to get my daughter interested in programming. You need no prior programming experience to get through this book. My daughter is 7 and she can navigste it in her own. The book showcases programming in a fun and easy to follow way. I am very happy with this purchase and would recomment this book to anyone who wants to get kids interested in programming.

Excellent. I like the way it starts with Scratch and moves to Python using screen shots of Scratch coding blocks alongside the Python code. The code is well annotated.
