With school starting in just a couple of weeks, I thought it would be great if both kids AND parents could be prepared. So I teamed up with Sterling Publishing to offer you the chance to win Coding for Parents by Frazer Wilson.
Coding for Parents is designed to help parents understand their children’s coding homework. I know that sounds kind of funny, but it’s help that we need!
Most parents didn’t have coding homework when they were in school, so most of us don’t understand the assignments our kids are bringing home. So how are we supposed to help our kids with their homework when we don’t know how to do it?
My kids have started getting into coding, so this book will be a big help for us, as I’m sure it will be for you.
Here’s a little info about the book:
Unlock the mysteries of coding with this easy-to-follow and well-illustrated guide! Organized by age and grade, CODING FOR PARENTS (Sterling, August 2017) leads you through the basics – building your knowledge of key concepts, terminology, and techniques, and giving you the language you’ll need to explain it all to your child. Instructional diagrams and compelling illustrations appear throughout to enhance your understanding, and the book covers the most popular software, including Scratch, Python, and Java.
CODING FOR PARENTS will teach you what you need to know so you can teach your kids – and learn something new yourself!
Author Frazer Wilson is a web designer and front-end developer who teaches coding in local schools as part of an organization called Code Club. This is his first book! Visit him on Twitter: @frazewilson.
