Snake Wrangling for Kids: Learning to Program with Python
« on: January 19, 2009, 06:20:44 AM »
If you ever wanted to get your kids started with programming and wasn't sure where to find something written for their level, that they would understand, give this one a try.

Snake Wrangling for Kids is a free ebook (CC licensed) specifically written for teaching kids ages 8 and older how to program, using Python.

This one is meant to be printed out and stapled together and given to a child as a gift. (and not necessarily your own child, either)

It comes in 3 different flavors (Mac, Linux, Windows) and 2 different versions (for Python 3 & Python 2).

Excellent timing: I was *just* looking for a python book for kids  :D

I wonder if I should translate it 8), but it has 160 pages :o

I bought a copy of Computer Programming Is Fun for my son and it's been quite useful.
Good to see a free option, nice find!
