        February 1, 2018
        Grades 1-4 With bright, colorful illustrations and a pleasantly jumbled layout, these titles in the Kids Get Coding series introduce key computer-programming concepts to early elementary-schoolers. Each volume uses approachable, everyday examples and a friendly tone to both explain why coding is important and invite readers to try a few simple activities in the text or a linked website, which includes both Scratch exercises and worksheets. Centered around designing an adventure game, Programming Games and Animation addresses how to code character movements, game play, and score keeping. The simple, straightforward text is nicely pitched to a younger audience, and the cheerful illustrations and hands-on components give this useful, high-interest topic added appeal.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2018, American Library Association.)

        These introductory titles for elementary-age readers focus on how we can use computers and coding in daily life. Simply designed text boxes bolster readability; blocky illustrations with polka-dot backgrounds underscore the digital subject matter and should appeal to a child audience. Quizzes and coding challenges are engaging; online activities provide additional worksheets and simple exercises. Glos., ind.
