Scratch Programming Playground is an exciting introduction to coding. Perfect for kids, parents or a teacher. I have a nephew who LOVES to program, anything that he can. This is a great book for aspiring programmers and teaching coding. He has already programmed some items but this will help him learn more. While this book will encourage and inspire him to make his own game.
Coding and Programming
This book is an amazing and colorful drag and drop programming language in which it helps the users “connect blocks” of the code they are creating. While helping them create stories, games and animations. Perfect for the child who is more visual. Making this an excellent first step for aspiring programmers.
Scratch Programming Playground gives you step by step directions to familiar games. Such as fruit slicer, asteroids, snake and even a game that is very similar to super mario bros. Showing you how to combine colorful blocks of code your kids will learn quickly the concepts. Such as loops, strings and variables.
Each chapter will ask questions that help you remember the concepts. While also offering extra coding challenges that help you level up in each game. My nephew and brother-in-law are going to enjoy this book so much. They are our “nerd/geeks”. This will be a great and very used gift that I can give them for the holidays. I was looking through this book and even I picked up a few tips. Just let you know that it works for someone like me. I am not tech savvy and have no clue about programming something to where it actually works. So, for ME to understand and make something work, just let’s me know. My nephew will LOVE this book!
This book is such a great way to ease inquisitive kids into computer science.
