Learn to Program

Learn to Program (Kids Get Coding)
by Heather Lyons (Author), Elizabeth Tweedale (Author), and Alex Westgate (Illustrator)

Booktalk: What do programs tell computers to do? And how are they written? Programs are instructions that computers follow. Learn about different programming languages, coding rules and bugs, and how to solve problems.

Snippet: Our brains can connect meaning to instructions. For example, if someone said “Go down to the slide,” we would understand that they mean for us to first walk up the steps, sit on the slide, and then slide down.

However, a computer needs step-by-step instructions:

1. Walk to the steps.
2. Climb up the steps.
3. Sit on the top of the slide.
4. Slide down the slide.
