Computers and technology have changed our lives and things continue to evolve. Children born today will never know a world without the internet and computers, so it doesn’t seem too strange to try and expose them to these things at an early age because this should benefit and encourage them in the long run. My First Coding Book is a pop-up board book, which is designed for six and seven year olds. It uses colourful illustrations, puzzles, games and other information including some basic concepts ...more

This is an easy to understand and simple book. A quick read and interesting. It gets the point across simply and definitely makes it a little easier to understand the basics of coding. A great first look and intro into the way coding works. Brings back the days when computers were first in school. Great for any age. Enjoy

While this is a large-size board book, the interactive, slides, wheel, and flaps need that format to function. This is a fun presentation of the basic elements of breaking down a task into all its elements, planning, searching for "bugs," recognizing patterns, planning choices.
Could be used as an intro for older students as they work through these steps.

Excellent introduction with step-by-step instructions and a good layout.
The Jungle escape is a little confusing - I'm not sure that was necessary.

Pattern - cool
Sequence - good
Has a glossary

This is such an important skill we NEED to be teaching kids - starting early.

Maybe not a book for the littlest of kids, but certainly something I can share with everyone asking me what I'm going to school for.

This is a surprisingly good, interactive book that explains the basics in terms that anyone can understand and make it interesting. I will have to buy this one.

Best book about coding I've ever read. I learned a few things. Granted I have a lot to learn. I feel like my kids and I are learning together. We need more books like this.

Just a great book for little readers! It's rated 5+, but our 3 year old can do it just fine.
