Publisher's Description

Take kids from browsing to building with DK Workbooks: Computer Coding. Created for children ages 6–9, this highly visual workbook builds basic programming skills using Python, a free computer coding program and language available for download.

Perfect for beginner coders, DK Workbooks: Computer Coding explains how computer coding works and teaches kids how to complete simple coding actions with clear, step-by-step instructions and fun pixel art. All they need is a desktop or laptop, and an internet connection to download Python 3.

From creating lists to solving math problems to controlling a robot in a maze, young coders will learn how to think like a computer. Kids can even test their coding knowledge with written quizzes at the end of each section and a glossary at the back of the book.

Supporting STEM education initiatives, computer coding teaches kids how to think creatively, work collaboratively, and reason systematically, and is quickly becoming a necessary and sought-after skill. DK's computer coding books are full of fun exercises with step-by-step guidance, making them the perfect introductory tools for building vital skills in computer programming.
