As you can see, the wording is made for the age 7-12 year old level, though older kids may roll their eyes at the stickers, they can't argue with how much they can learn from the book. It really does a great job in teach kids the hostory of coding and then onto the basics. It's a fun book that TEACHES when the kids aren't paying attention! If youre looking at adding coding to your hoem school curriculumn, you might want to use this book as a intro first! Parents can also use it as a fun "I'm Bored' attention grabber!

and speaking of ge=rabbing your attention- using the right COLORS when coding, can make a huge difference when you have a website or blog, and this other book, which I actually picked up in the clearance section of a popular national book store, is just the thing you need!

Coding and web-design skills are becoming more and more important in our technological world. These concept books will familiarize young ones with the kind of shapes and colors that make up web-based programming language and give them the head start they need. Help your little ones learn how to specify web-safe colors with this hexadecimal lift-the-flap book, and get them started on the visual patterns and symbols that make up the essential building blocks of the web.

This book might be the size of a kids board book, but it's a VER handy resource!  The lift flaps are definitely more for the kids, but the EASY to learn color coding is perfect for any age learner. I had never understood the color coding for html, but now it all makes sense, after just 10 minutes with this book! But more than that, having a book with the codes already on the different color panels, allows me to grab the color I need quickly, and add just teh right touch to my html! If you, or your kids, are learning how to code, be sure to pick this book up (it's still on clearance, even online!)!
