Take kids from playing games to creating them with DK Workbooks: Coding in Scratch: Games Workbook. Perfect for children ages 6–9 who are new to coding, this highly visual workbook is a fun introduction to Scratch, a free computer coding programming language.

With easy-to-follow directions and fun pixel art, DK Workbooks: Coding in Scratch: Games Workbook helps kids understand the basics of programming and how to create games in Scratch through fun, hands-on learning experiences.

DK Workbooks: Coding in Scratch: Games Workbook helps kids make their own Scratch Cat soccer game, design a ghost hunt that features a flying witch, animate a bouncing melon, or build a game to test reaction speeds, with simple and logical instructions every step of the way.
