Take your from browsing to building the web with the latest in DK's award-winning Help Your series: Help Your Kids With Coding. Computer is one of the fastest-growing industries and highest paid degrees, and learning to code promotes a way of thinking helpful for every budding brain.

Help correct this disparity by introducing your kids to the world of computer programming early, with a fun and approachable method. This book begins by introducing the essential concepts of programming with simple instructions, and without specialized computer lingo. Fun projects throughout let kids start putting their computer skills into practice and build their own code using Scratch programming and , the two most popular languages. Also included are profiles on coding stars and insights in technology such as the mini computer. In typical DK fashion, colorful graphics and step-by-step instructions assist readers in starting to think like their computers.
