Book review – Coding Games in Scratch

This is a guest post by Takoma Park neighbor Phil Shapiro. Phil is an educator and technology access activist in the Washington DC-area since the late 1980’s. He’s found inspiration in the learning that goes on in after-school programs, adult literacy organizations, public libraries and organizations bringing music instruction and the arts to children.

My friend Kim alerted me to this book she found at the Takoma Neighborhood Library. (The library in DC, not Maryland.)

I found the book to be very nicely done. If you know children who are learning Scratch computer programming, they might

find value in the book. I would say this book would have the most value to intermediate to advanced Scratch
programmers, rather than beginner Scratch programmers.

 This book is currently checked out of the library, but if you have a DC Libraries card, you can put a hold on the book if you’d like to be next in line to read it.

If you know others interested in computer programming with kids, kindly share this email with them.
