s far as I am concerned, the words
do not belong in the same sentence. For me, this was a painful read. I found the highlight of this book to be the illustration of the Husky, my favorite breed of dog, on page 58. In fact, I understand Huskies more than I do coding.
filled with fantastic facts for kids of all ages.
' While the target audience is readers ten years old and up, adults may be interested in this book as well. I am not one of those adults.
olorful illustrations accompany a dizzying amount of facts and instructions. Beginning techies will be entertained, I suppose, while they learn about computers and programming. However, this is not the book for you if cleaning out your closet sounds like more fun than learning about computer technology.
figure my intense disinterest in this subject is related to the fact that, when I was young, computers were not a household item or even something everyone had access to. Coding involves numbers and math, a subject I never particularly cared for nor excelled in. Now, diagramming sentences ... that's fun!
