The Reviews

I initially bought the book as a gift for Christmas. Unfortunately, instead of my little brother using it, I've used it more! I have read multiple python beginner's books and this one really gets into the detail of the syntaxes. "Adult" python books are normally dry and you become disinterested after an hour of reading it. This book is the complete opposite and you'll read it and follow along for hours... I highly recommend it both young and old.

So far, the first animal quiz does not work. Copied exactly as the book shows. Anyone else have problems with this or other programs in this book?*Updated review: I like it, but I am not experienced with python at all. I had no one to ask questions and was grateful that they included the website to download programs which is where I also was able to look up FAQs. This helped, but my daughters were able to find the solution in the book faster. I take it back, this book is definitely worth it. Indentions are more important than I thought. ;)Good luck to all other moms and dads trying to encourage their kids to learn something new and useful. If you get stuck, as the kids for help :D

I bought this book second but wish I had bought it first. Lots of fun little projects that expand on each other. Lessons are simple and easy to follow along. I like that at the end it makes some suggestions with nice hints to expand on what you just did.

I have tutored a 10 year old and an 11 year old with this book with amazing success. The material is example based and the colors and jokes keep the kids engaged. If you're looking to get anyone around the 9-12 age group started with coding "for real" (i.e., a step above Scratch), this is the book to get.

Great product, great value, and fast shipping.

If you had a hard time getting a hold of basis concepts, when you are first starting out this really helps break everything down then you can build into the more elaborate books

Well done! Clear fun Python projects appropriate for any age. The graphics sections areperfect both for turtle graphics and graphics with Tkinter.BRAVO!

Bought as a gift and my grandson likes it
