With no knowledge at all you could produce webpages in a matter of hours. You'll be writing code in a matter of minutes. The explanations are gloriously simple and straightforward and there are even online resources if you get stuck. The steps are very easy and you start seeing rewards straight away - there's no toiling away for hours only to find that there's still really nothing to see. This has been written by people who understand how children's minds work - and a lot of adults too! [...] It's all great stuff and I can't think of a better way to get kids started on coding. I just wish I'd had this sort of opportunity when I was nine! * The Bookbag * A hot topic is introduced in this fabulously informative textbook for junior coders (and adults looking for a simple introduction!) [...] Basic coding skills and clean step-by-step explanations make this a thorough workbook to help enthusiasts teach themselves an exciting new skill. * IBW Children's Book Guide, The Bookseller * This book goes into a lot more detail than many others I have seen, so it gives excellent coverage. * Parents in Touch * Learning is through completing six 'missions' and discovering how to create an app or a game to your own design would be interesting and fun for kids. More advanced than other coding books I've read, this would be a useful addition to your library, primary or secondary. * SLA *
