This book is so well organized, and I appreciate the meticulousness of all the instructions. So far everything explained in each step works perfectly. So that helps limit frustrations!
So if your child is ready to learn html and make a website, this book is perfect for learning each step. And the lessons are fun because there is a story behind the web page creation (such as a scientist finding a rare jewel).
I highly recommend this book for learning web-page creation.
The book starts each section with a Mission Brief on some wacky adventure for your kid (and you, if you'd like to help) to tackle. It starts off super basic (no coding experience needed at all), going through very simple HTML pages with minimal styling. But they don't skimp on tough topics, and the thing I like is that the text is simple enough to understand for my 8-year-old, but detailed enough for me to be able to help him. I do know HTML and CSS pretty well, but I've never had to teach it, so I love the way they break down the concepts with longer explanations, cut diagrams, and plenty of annotated code examples.
HOW THIS BOOK COMPARES TO OTHER CODING FOR KIDS BOOKS
I have used a lot of "python for kids" books (5, to be exact--see my blog at www.learnrichly.com for some very detailed reviews) with my older two kids. For my third-born, who is now 8, I wanted to start him with HTML/CSS/JS instead of Python. This book is somewhat shorter than the best Python titles, but it's geared toward younger kids and I think it does really well. It's not expensive and not too long, so it compares really favorably with the Python books or even the Scratch books (and, let's face it, Scratch isn't a very practical skill compared to web development with HTML and CSS).
