Scratch 3.0 has landed, so stay ahead of the curve with this fully-updated guide for beginner coders. Kids will love the step-by-step, visual approach that makes even the most difficult coding concepts fun and easy to understand.

Computer Coding Games for Kids blends coding theory with the practical task of creating exciting games. Children will learn the fundamentals of computer programming by showing them how to build their own games.
