It's never too early to get little ones interested in computer coding with this unique series of board books!
How do you explain coding to a baby? By showing how it's all around them, and how they can take part in it, of course! By using items common in a baby's world, like a teddy bear and electric train, this charming board book full of bright, colorful illustrations is the perfect introduction to coding for babies and their caregivers--and is sure to leave them wanting to learn more!
In a board book addition to the Girls Who Code franchise, Horning introduces the rudimentary concepts behind coding. In illustrations with a mid-century vibe, a baby in polka-dot pajamas plays with familiar toys and objects. Horning features lines of simple code that echo the baby's activities. She employs language to tell a long-eared dog to sit, just as "Code uses letters and numbers to tell computers what to do." When she uses a remote control for her toy robot, the rosy-cheeked bot announces: "robot.beep( )." And when the baby needs to take a nap, "Code tells the toy's computer when to sleep, too!" Horning provides a basic introduction to a complex concept. Ages up to 3.
