Learning to Program (Kids Get Coding Series) by Heather Lyons and Elizabeth Tweedale -ESSENTIAL

Lyons, Heather and Elizabeth Tweedale Learning to Program (Kids Get Coding Series), Illustrated by Westgate, Alex. 24pgs, Lerner 2016. $19.99. Content: G

This book goes over all the coding basics; key terms, the computer languages, rules, writing a program, problem solving and more. Its fun, very informative without being overwhelming, provides simple tasks and tips and even has links to online activities.

This book is perfect for 2-4 graders who want an introduction to coding. I even learned a few things reading this book. Its bright and appealing and the authors did a wonderful job creating analogies and providing fun and interesting facts and tasks. This will be a big hit after all the students in my school participate in The Hour of Code event in December.
