For kids, learning to code is an exciting and creative activity. But it’s more than that – it’s becoming an essential part of their education journey. The Coding Book strikes the right balance between education and entertainment in a bright and vibrant layout, using Snap! – a free, online program that runs on all devices. Presented as an action-packed adventure filled with 19 exciting “missions”, this title is designed to help build programming skills, teach coding concepts and develop essential coding habits.

Perfect for those new to coding or those with some basic coding experience, kids can work at their own pace as they help Pax and the VALID team code their way through a series of exciting missions, creating their own programs and fun, playable games. Each mission features helpful screenshots and illustrations, clearly demonstrating each step to help establish and reinforce good coding practices that professional coders use every day.

With over 192-pages of content in a handy lay-flat binder format, The Coding Book will help your child foster creativity, strategic thinking and problem-solving skills, as well as a passion for the digital world of coding.

Coding or computer programming is giving a computer step by step commands to tell it what to do. It allows us to make websites, games and apps so it’s a big part of our future – this is the reason coding is now part of our New Zealand school curriculum. “Coding helps students develop systematic reasoning, problem-solving and communication skills”. Amongst the range of coding books available, it is important that they complement the classroom curriculum and this book has been chosen as one of our lead books because it does. It has a guide for parents with easy chapters in folder style to take you through all you need to know and links to ‘Snap’ a free online program that runs on all devices. Each ‘mission’ is designed to help develop good coding practice that professional coders use every-day – so it’s setting up good habits and putting best practice in place. The Coding Book is also part of our STEM range in store promoting science, technology, engineering and maths – which adds to a child’s educational experience.
