Product description

Review

I was thrilled how much my son got into programming as a result of this book. He spent hours with it and was often surprised when his "screen time" was over because the time just flew by. Although the book doesn't delve into the fundamentals of software programming (how computers store and retrieve data), kids get to see the results of their programming right away--the pictures and animations that they created--and are hooked into wanting to learn more. -- Mark Musante, professional software designer

I would recommend this book to anyone my age that is interested in coding or technology. It was very helpful and insightful about the basic (and the more complex) parts of standard coding. This book would be great for anyone looking to jump head-first into coding. -- Hana B., age 15

This is the best book a beginning programmer could get. It teaches programming concepts in fun and entertaining ways. This book is a great start in learning to program! -- Alec M., age 13

It has been great fun reading this book. It takes me back to when I fell in love with programming. After having spent the past twenty years programming solutions on the server side, I find this 3D book a welcome diversion that offers new concepts and ideas with instant visual feedback! I hope the book finds its way into the hands of an inquisitive child who gets hooked on computer programming like I did. -- Darren Hunt, Director Algorithmic Solutions Limited
