Publisher Description

Coding for kids is easy with this colourful illustrated guide by best-selling education author Carol Vorderman.

Based on the programming language Scratch, the book is divided into a range of creative projects - from interactive birthday cards to music and games - and each one is illustrated with simple, step-by-step instructions that walk beginners through the basics of computer coding.

Activities such as creating a virtual firework display, simulated snowflakes, fractal art and mind-bending optical illusions not only teach essential coding skills, but enable kids to have fun as they learn. Projects can be personalised and adapted to encourage creativity, and can even be shared with friends, providing a simple and fun way for kids to learn coding.
