Coding for Beginners Using Scratch (Video and Links)

My nephew will be 10 in August and absolutely LOVES these books! My brother (his dad) is a computer programmer so they have a lot of fun together. 🙂

An introduction to coding for complete beginners, this friendly and accessible book will teach children the basics of Scratch (a free, online program developed by MIT which is widely used in elementary schools), allowing them to get inside the code of their computer and create simple games and animations on screen.

We have another book like this using Python. Both are $14.99 each! Do you know someone that would have a blast with these?
