Coding with Scratch (in easy steps)

This book, subtitled “Create Awesome Platform Games” is part of the QuestKids set of books aimed at young children who benefit from the full-color experience of other In Easy Steps titles. This one takes readers from the basics of Scratch to creating their own driving games in a few simple steps. Max Wainewright shows how to create each game with challenges to take you to the next level of coding. The book even includes mods to make the games more exciting.

To create the games in this book, children will need a desktop or laptop computer. The games require a proper keyboard so won’t run well on a tablet or iPad.
