5.0 out of 5 stars So glad I bought this! Well worth it if you have kids., 11 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Adventures In Raspberry Pi (Kindle Edition)
I bought my son (age 10) this book after we bought him a Raspberry Pi for Christmas, since he is interested in learning to write his own games.
This book has proved to be perfect! It takes you through the setup etc. like many other books do - but the great thing about this book is that the 'adventures' (sort of mini-projects) are aimed at children and are things that my son actually wanted to try.
Within about an hour he (with some help from me) had created an animation with a little character that he could control with the arrow keys, and make it 'go through a portal into a cave'.
My son went from being slightly daunted by his Raspberry Pi, to saying it was his best present ever - and he can't wait to do more adventures from this book.
Worth every penny :-)
