My Thoughts

This is not the typical book to read, this one is to think and learn with it! Perfect for young and adults, it will surprise you, for sure. It’s not easy to learn coding, but this book and the program associate with it will allow to any new learner an easy understanding of the basic commands for coding. Inside the book you will find the commands you can use. To make it more understandable, the commands are colored and with examples and explanations to make any reader want to try it and discover that something that always thought it was difficult, it’s not! You’ll have to download a program to use (there’s the link inside the book, don’t worry!) Again there are all the steps you have to follow to make it easy for anyone. I really liked to play with this book with my son (and by myself!), I really hope there will be more on this series with different stories and more commands to learn! Ready to enter “The Pirate and R” world?
