Title: Coding for Kids: Python: Learn to Code with 50 Awesome Games and Activities
Author: Adrienne B. Tacke
The perfect summer activity for kids who are into and wanting to learn more about coding. My daughters are 10 and 8 and this book had them hooked and excited to go back to school to join the coding club. The book takes kids and helps parents too learn about coding and how to create.
My oldest found some of it a little to easy while my 8 and 6 year old enjoyed the learning and creating.
