Description:
The current crop of programming books for kids that I've seen fell into two categories. First, books that did not teach programming so much as "game creation software" or in dumbed down languages to make programming "easy". Or second, they taught programming like a mathematics textbook: all principles and concepts with application left to the reader. This book takes a different approach: show the game source code right up front and explain programming principles from the examples.
