Get coding by David Whitney (Young Rewired State)
Walker Books,2016. ISBN 9781406366846
Get coding utilises Duncan Beedie's cartoon-like characters, speech bubbles, 'Did you notice?' boxes and colour coding of chapters, to draw the reader into the concepts covered. Each mission is clearly stated and supported with step by step instructions before launching into do it yourself tasks. Readers are directed to weblinks such as the Get coding kids website for further help and are encouraged at the end of the book to continue to develop their skills through other websites.
First steps into any programming language can be daunting, but provided younger coders are supported with adult help when needed, they can work through this book to successfully create their first web content.
