Get children coding with this lively book from Usborne.

Building on from the previous Usborne Coding book using Scratch, children will learn how to use Python, one of the most popular computer languages, used by Google, NASA and Youtube! Python was designed to be straightforward and easy to read, so it’s an accessible programming language for kids to learn.

Step-by-step instructions show children how to write a simple program, then introduce new commands. Children will learn and use coding concepts such as variables, conditionals, decision trees and correct syntax! Don’t worry if you don’t know what these terms mean, theres a handy glossary in the back of the book, along with tips for debugging your code.

The pages are full of colourful illustrations, to ensure children stay engaged and aren’t bored stiff by a wall of text. Each section has a mini coding project, which can be played once finished! Activities come with optional extensions, so children can customise the program and make it their own.

The activities in the 96 page book include; making a secret decoder using a cipher, creating a choose your own adventure, drawing snowflakes with a turtle, coding your own mine sweeper, and much more coding fun!

Also, if you’re wondering why it’s called Python, the man who wrote it was a big Monty Python’s Flying Circus fan! So it was made with fun in mind!
