Very lovely book - the one we've been waiting for!
on 15 September 2012
I'm an ICT teacher and a parent of young children.
I want my own kids and the kids I teach at school to learn to love Scratch and to feel enthusiastic about it.
This is the book that I have been waiting for - it LOOKS GORGEOUS, is a GREAT READ and INCLUDES A NICE RANGE OF DIFFERENT game types.
I'm pretty delighted with it but I would add a few words of caution:
It's expensive - few schools could afford a class set of these.
It is a bit prescriptive - draw this, press on this, add this control etc etc and could do with more explanation of what you are doing and why you are doing it.
But it is such a lovely book and the games are so appealing that I'm sure it would add that vital spark that moves you to find out more about the technical bits that make Scratch so powerful and so much fun.
A very recommended buy.
