Kids love computers, and they love using their sponge-like little brains to figure stuff out. Plonk them in from of an unknown videogame and marvel at their abilities to navigate complex new worlds and challenges. By applying their innate powers of logic and discovery to learning basic computer coding, your kids can create a game, build an app or website and learn the languages of computing – all STEM skills they’ll likely use throughout their futuristic lives. They can do it all from home, it's fun and, as they'll show you, it’s probably easier then you thought. Here are some books to help get them started.
