Teach Your Kids to Code debuted at the #1 spot in Children’s Programming Books on Amazon this past week, and as a #1 Hot New Release in both Python and in Beginner’s Programming Books! I owe a sincere debt of gratitude to everyone who pre-ordered Teach Your Kids to Code and to those who purchased it on Amazon this week!
I also have to thank Christopher Mims of the Wall Street Journal for mentioning the book in his outstanding article from earlier in the week, “Why Coding Is Your Child’s Key to Unlocking the Future” (WSJ, 4/27/2015), as well as GeekDad.com author and reviewer James Floyd Kelly, for posting a glowing review for New Book Tuesday on GeekDad.com – James listed 10 things he liked about the book!
We’re still bouncing around in the top 10 Children’s Programming Books as of this writing, so if you haven’t picked up a copy and prefer the convenience of Amazon, please do so soon – or, grab one at Barnes & Noble if you like.
If the big online retailers don’t appeal to you, swing by a brick-and-mortar Barnes & Noble to pick up a copy on display this month. You can also still save 30% off the cover price by going directly to the publisher’s web site at http://www.nostarch.com/teachkids – enter the code COOLKIDS at checkout.
Thank you to all my readers, and to all the parents, teachers, and kids who’ll be coding this summer with Teach Your Kids to Code. Remember to tweet your favorite graphical or screenshot creations to me at @brysonpayne from code you’ve written using the book, and I’ll retweet it to 5,000+ followers to show off the cool apps you’re building!
If you like the book and your kids love coding, please post a review on Amazon, B&N, or tweet/message me directly!
Thank you all again, and happy coding!
Update 5/11/2015: In our second week of retail sales, we’re still hovering in the top 10 Children’s Programming Books on Amazon, have several reviews and a solid 4.7+ stars. Keep those pics, comments and screenshots coming via Facebook, Instagram and Twitter (@brysonpayne) to let me know how the young person in your life, or how you personally, like coding with Teach Your Kids to Code, and happy coding!
