    5. I just heard this book It was read to me by the amazing Josh Funk in a Skype call he did with my students It is packed with so much great information about coding, but in the form of a story Younger students will appreciate the artwork and the humour, and older kids will understand some of the coding references If you are thinking of introducing coding to your class, this book is great Its also just a funny book to read with your kids when it comes out.
