“Lift-the-flap computers and coding” at Usborne Children’s BooksA generation of children in the s learned about programming from a series of computing books by Usborne Publishing. Now the company has rereleased them in free digital versions. The digital books are likely to provoke pangs of nostalgia for anyone who grew up with them, although for modern-day children more used to playing games on a console or tablet than writing them on a computer, they are more likely to be historical curiosities. Many professional games developers got their first experience of programming through these books. Their re-release comes at a time when there is a renewed push to teach programming in schools to children as young as five years old. Usborne has recently published two new books in the series: Lift-the-Flap Computers and Coding, and Coding for Beginners using Scratch. The latter focuses on the Scratch programming tool developed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology MIT , which is used in schools worldwide.

The Industrial Age is over, and the Information Age is here. While I am far from computer illiterate, my use of technology is limited to my laptop and smartphone. I use social media all the time and can work with HTML a little bit, but I cannot troubleshoot any coding problems. My husband and I thus agree that both our children will learn to code. As he says, even administrative assistants will need at least basic coding skills in the near future. Thus, when recently offered the chance to review four computer and coding books from Usborne Books in exchange for my honest opinion, I eagerly accepted the opportunity to add some new titles to my home library. The hardcover book in the Look Inside Board Books series introduces readers age 5 and older to many facts about computers including what goes on inside a computer, how programs organize and send information around, and the history of computers.
