Coding iPhone Apps for Kids: A playful introduction to Swift
by Gloria Winquist (Author) and Matt McCarthy (Author)

Booktalk: Learn how to use Swift to write programs, even if you’ve never programmed before. Anyone can use Swift to make cool apps for the iPhone or iPad. Once you master the basics, you’ll build a birthday tracker app so that you won’t forget anyone’s birthday and a platform game called Schoolhouse Skateboarder with animation, jumps, and more!

You’ll work in the Xcode playground, an interactive environment where you can play with your code and see the results of your work immediately! You’ll also learn the fundamentals of programming, like how to store data in arrays, use conditional statements to make decisions, and create functions to organize your code–all with the help of clear and patient explanations.
