Get Coding! Learn HTML, CSS, and JavaScript and Build a Website, App, and Game - Book Review and Giveaway

I received book for review from Candlewick Press.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
Book Overview:

Crack open this book and set off on several fun missions — while simultaneously learning the basics of writing code. Want to make a website from scratch? Create an app? Build a game? All the tools are here, laid out in a user-friendly format that leads kids on an imaginary quest to keep a valuable diamond safe from dangerous jewel thieves. Presented by Young Rewired State — an international collective of tech-savvy kids — in easy-to-follow, bite-size chunks, the real-life coding skills taught in this engaging, comprehensive guide may just set young readers on the path to becoming technology stars of the future.

Learn how to write HTML, CSS, and JavaScript and build your own website, app, and game! An essential guide to computer programming for kids— by kids.


My Review:

I've been a blogger for eight years now.  I've had to learn a lot of HTML and other coding on my own.  And, there's still a lot more for me to discover.  

Although Get Coding! is geared towards kids 9-12 years of age, I have learned so much from it myself.  The book is divided into different sections that teach HTML, CSS, and JavaScript coding skills.  Illustrated characters - Dr. Day, Ernst, and Professor Bairstone - help show the way.  Tasks and instructions to build a web page, create a password, code an app, make a game, and more are included.  I won't lie, I'm still confused by some of the information but, overall, Get Coding! is very helpful and descriptive with its explanations.  I will be keeping this book as an educative reference when my kids or I need to work with coding on computers.
Win It!

One person will win a Get Coding! Learn HTML, CSS, and JavaScript and Build a Website, App, and Game book.

Terre,

Alright this is one of the few giveaways I'm MAKING time to enter. Like you, I've taught myself some of the basics of HTML coding but there's so much more to learn and with my brain these days an elementary level is what I need for this to make better sense. :D Thanks for hosting the giveaway and for sharing it with me!
