Reviews

"Python is a really powerful programming language with very simple and human-like syntax. Thanks to these advantages and the interactive exercises and games in Coding for Kids: Python, everyone--regardless of age--will be able to understand the power of the language and start using it immediately. I really can't wait to use some of these examples in our school!"--Marcin Zajkowski, Co-owner of WOW School

"We will use Coding For Kids: Python as our main reference in the free python workshops that we organize for kids. From installation to having a full running python program, it has easy-to-follow instructions as well as colorful graphics and fun-filled activities. Kids will definitely love programming with this book"--Cleo Credo, Software Engineer and Community Builder of PizzaPy Cebu

"Coding for Kids: Python is a very visual, well-presented introduction to programming that I suspect would not only please young learners but older learners who might be turned off by the less-friendly-looking offerings next to it on the bookstore shelf...It's informative, engaging and well-organized."--Peter F.
