My First Coding Book

by Kiki Prottsman

An interactive book with flaps, wheels, and sliders that teaches the basic concepts of computer coding, perfect for kids as young as 5 years old to play with offline.

It’s never too early to learn about computer coding! With amazing, interactive paper engineering, My First Coding Book is a playful, hands-on introduction to offline coding and programming that will give young children a head start–and they don’t even need a computer.

This book will have kids lifting the flaps, turning the wheels, and pulling the sliders to understand the basic concepts of sequences, algorithms, and debugging to get the desired result. Puzzles, mazes, and games, including a “Jungle Escape,” are colorfully designed, make learning fun, will develop critical thinking and logic, and will help to cement lifelong computer literacy, a skill that is extremely valuable and sought-after in today’s world.

My First Coding Book makes play and learning the principles of coding one and the same for children ages 5+.

Supporting STEM education initiatives, computer coding teaches kids how to think creatively, work collaboratively, and reason systematically, and is quickly becoming a necessary and sought-after skill. DK’s computer coding books are full of fun exercises with step-by-step guidance, making them the perfect introductory tools for building vital skills in computer programming.
