When kids join Coder Academy, they undertake a series of imaginative and challenging activities that help them to begin to write code in Scratch and HTML. With fun activities on and off the computer, this book encourages kids to be creative with code. They create a character and then animate it in code, write a tune and play it on their computer, and design a simple game and website. In the Coder's Kit at the back of the book, there is a game, poster and stickers. And, there's a robot model to press out and make on the book's cover flaps. Fun and educational, kids can learn about this essential skill in a fresh and playful way.

Industry Reviews

"May even plant the seed for a lifetime passion for - or even a career in - the exciting world of computer coding." * How It Works Magazine *
"A fantastic activity book for tech-loving kids." * Tech Age Kids *
"A fun, appealing and stimulating approach to one of the key skills of the 21st century." * LoveReading4Kids *
"As well as featuring cool illustrations, the book comes packed with extras including stickers, a poster, and 3D model
robots to press out and construct. If you're learning to code for the first time, then this book is the perfect way to get started." * The Week Junior - *Book of the Week* *
"The must-have book for any future junior coders." * Parents in Touch *
"This book is totally rammed full of creative activities and problems to be solved. With extras at the back of the book including a game, a pull-out poster, stickers, and even a robot model to press out and make, this book is a must for anyone who wants to become a coder!" * Fun Kids Radio *
"Speaking as an adult with very little knowledge of coding, the step by step instructions are invaluable but I also think an adult with a better knowledge of coding could probably tease much more out of these activities than I did. Even so, this is a really useful guide - for adults as well as children! - into the world of coding." 5/5 * Reading Zone *
"A well-designed and well-written introduction to coding which could inspire primary-aged children to study computer science in later years, and it will provide a good support to school studies of computing." * Blog My Wiki *
`encourages kids to be creative with code' * BBC Culture *
