Scratch (21st Century Skills Innovation Library: Makers as Innovators) Reviews

UPDATE TIME: 2018-04-19 
Review Score: 4 out of 5 star From 0 user ratings

"Although the author provides an incredibly detailed walk-through of the designing of a simple video game through a computer programming language called scratch, I had to go online to see what it actually was since I'd never heard of it before. I wasn't sure at first if it was an app, something I needed to download or something else entirely. Thus, my criticism of the book is that in addition to explaining that this is computer programming language as he does that the author provides some context for how and when it could be used or where to find examples of scratch in action. As I discovered when I went online, there is a huge scratch community out there. Still, it may be that youngsters already know about this and wouldn't need the background information that I did. " said.

"Terrible. This book runs against all my beliefs in nonfiction books and kids learning to code. It's a level X book, so it's not a great fit for 2nd or 3rd graders on the outset (note: I'm NOT saying younger kids are incapable of successfully navigating higher-level texts).

This book spends so much time telling about that I'd be bored before I even actually started coding. Which is counter to the point of learning to problem solve using programming. There's even A WARNING at the front of the book that this is hard and that kids shouldn't code if their parents haven't studied up ahead of time.
