Format: Paperback
This is not only a great book for Scartch but a great book for getting kids into programming. I confess I'm a programmer and had taught my kids (10 and 8 when I gave them this) some Scratch but I wanted something they could do without me. I have fond memories of just "playing" with BASIC on my early home computers such as the Zx-Spectrum (Yes I am that old) and I wanted to give my kids the chance to do the same.
This book puts the subject matter over in a way that the kids can follow themselves. The comic book introductions and story-arc help to keep their interest and - coupled with Scratch itself - they found it really easy to code, diagnose and improve their code. I have since come home of an evening on more than a few occasions to find one of my kids going through something in the book or mucking around on Scratch themselves, using the skills they've learned through this.
I cannot recommend this book enough.

I gave this book to a grandson aged 10. He is now very keen on programming so its certainly worth the money

This is the second book on scratch programming you should get your child. The games they can make are really quite impressive. You need to make sure that they take things a chapter at a time though.

Actually, forget that last bit about making sure they take things a chapter at a time. Our daughter has now demolished the book. She absolutely loved it, and got some great, playable games under her belt as a result. She had asked for my help at one point as she was stuck (presumably from skipping a bit), but before I could find time to sit down with her and go through it, she had found what her mistake was and was now racing ahead again. Any programmer will tell you that the best way to learn something is by doing it, and making mistakes, so now I would just say, give them the book and let them get on with it. They will let you know if they have hit a wall, and at then point you can introduce some structure. But until them, just let them get on with it. This book lets them do just that.
