Kirkus Reviews

"Full-color screenshots of exactly how things will appear on a computer screen are shown large size, in line with font sizing and spacing designed with the audience—independent readers—in mind, producing a book that minimizes the need for adult assistance. While this surprisingly packed volume doesn't touch much on troubleshooting and mucking about in code to see what happens as some other Scratch guides for kids do, its approach (emphasizing the purpose of each step it asks readers to take) is clear, thorough, and especially accessible for less-confident learners. The extensive instructions on image creation and animation will enable just about anyone to create something nifty, and they provide tools for those with artistic aspirations to advance with their own embellishments. . . .A must for any collection of programming books for kids." - Kirkus Reviews
