Python Programming for Beginners: A Kid's Guide to Coding Fundamentals (Rockridge Press)
Friday, 27 November 2020

This book teaches kids about Python and programming fundamentals―and is packed full of fun and creative activities to encourage learning, Patricia Foster starts off with the basics, explaining all about fundamental coding concepts and how kids can put these concepts together in Python to build their own games and programs.


Each chapter focuses on a different coding concept―like variables, data types, and loops―and features three coding activities to try. These activities get more difficult as they go, so young coders can see just how much their skills are growing.
