Review

My son loved the projects and immediately book marked a few of the projects to try with his Dad. The book is really well made, he loved the colour coded pages and the progress bar which runs along the top of each page. My son really enjoyed reading this book and was excited to get started. The Gingerbread House With the high production values you expect from DK books, tons of lovely artwork, and a whole host of interesting programming projects, it's an instant win. Read it Daddy Star Wars Coding Projects is a fantastic introduction to an increasingly important skill. It's an ideal gift for kids who are new to coding and should set them up with both the knowledge and confidence to create their own games and animations using Scratch. Diary of the Dad Learn to code with C-3PO and Darth Vader. This easy guide lets them build their own characters, navigate spaceships through an asteroid belt and go on jet-pack adventures. Smallish
