I give Coding for Kinds Python by Adrienne Tacke a score of two because of its practice of introducing advanced computer jargon early on with limited or no explanations Ms Tacke uses computer jargon without realizing that many terms that seem common knowledge to her are not common knowledge to her target audience kidsI have worked as a middle school teacher professional tutor and created and ran an after school program where I taught fifth through twelfth grade students to be tutors to younger children A key lesson I taught them is that any event that breaks a student’s understanding of what is being studied gets in the way of learning and undefined terms are the prime culprits for students at all agesI had hoped to use this book to teach my grandson William Python over a Zoom connection We each have copy of the book and I expected that I could get him started and help him in those places where he could not advance independently However as I read this book I found 16 items within the first 35 pages that I felt I needed to explain to him On page 33 “string literals” were introduced without a clear explanation of what they were The term Literal is not even in the book’s glossary I searched online for a good explanation but wasn’t satisfied I finally found one in the 1537 page O’Reilly book Learning Python by Mark LutzBased on my incomplete understanding of literals I would explain them to William as a small list of data categories such as words or numbers build into the software along with the appropriate operators stored in a uick access place by the software Strings that have not been pre labeled as literals reuire the software to determine the data type and store the data in a different place The general advantage of using literals is that the program runs faster with literals than non literalsWe are going to switch over to Python for Kids a Playful Introduction to Programming by Jason Briggs It is much easier to work

We figured out how to load linux and python onto the chromebook even though there are not specific instructions for it chromebook in this book it gave us enough clues about how to do install with a little searching on the internet Once we got rolling we could follow the directions while keeping in mind we were not using a windows machine The book is well laid out and looks like my 10 year old can understand it even though he couldn't do the install by himself If you want to teach your kid one thing to get 'em excited try the turtle pen He loves using that Happy scripting
