Product description

Review

By the end of the book you have a fully-functional platform game running, and most likely a head full of ideas about your next game...Python for Kids is just as good an introduction for adults learning to code. -Geek.com

An excellent introduction to programming for anyone interested in learning to program, regardless of their age. The material is extremely well organized and presented, and makes for a great resource for either home or school.--GeekDad
