In this Python coding primer, Steele guides readers through coding essentials, including creating variables, using loops, and fixing bugs. Readers are asked to follow along with Steele to build nine coding games that grow in complexity. They include a quiz, a hot-air balloon flight game, a memory-related dancing game, and a search for dragon treasure. Creating each enables readers to develop their coding abilities—and playing them is the icing on the cake. Steele provides an empowering resource for readers in a format that allows individuals to learn at their own pace. Ages 9–12. (July)
