An introductory exposure to programming for toddlers that is as much fun for parents as it is for kids. Follow the protagonist, L, on her whimsical alphabetical programming adventure. L begins as an empty list, appends a boolean friend, and continues to adapt herself and come to understand her surroundings as she engages with and explores a range of programming structures and concepts. NOTE: This book will NOT teach you or your child programming. This book will expose him/her to programming vocabulary and tools. This is a children's book with the goal of stimulating curiosity and interest, not a programming textbook. The focus is on description not explanation. This book is written with the intention that readers with different levels of programming knowledge will come away with and be able to pass along different levels of understanding. Any reader should have no trouble following the text, the events they describe, and the illustrations. On the other hand, to understand the programming components or the explanation of why the events being described are occurring, the reader is expected to have some knowledge of programming.
Finally, a scientific series that treats babies like the geniuses they are! Written by an expert, Quantum Entanglement for Babies is a colorfully simple introduction to the phenomenon of quantum entanglement. Babies (and grownups) will learn all about the weird world of quantum particles. It is never too early to become a physicist!It only takes a small spark to ignite a child's mind.
