I Can Code: If/Then
Written by an expert, I Can Code: IF/THEN uses simple text, colorful illustrations, and interactive flaps to help little ones discover the building blocks of coding all around them! As they follow along with an adorable story about cause and effect, they'll explore fundamental concepts like conditions, rules, and logic―and have fun doing it.
Educators are saying every child needs to know the basics of coding―and this book will get them started as early as possible!
The illustrations are simple but cute, and I really loved that a father is playing with his daughter throughout. The If/Then statements about the child are cute and help introduce if/then concepts. The statements about the coding took a bit of thought for us (non-coding) parents to understand, so I think they will go well over most babies/toddlers heads. However, with parents who are into coding or routinely code, I think this would be a more fun experience to teach simplified concepts to their children - even if they don't grasp them right away.
The flaps are quite a bit of fun regardless, and there is a lot of appeal in the cute illustrations. This board book would be a perfect parent gift to a coder!
