Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This slight offering is intended for use with the Vidcode Lerner sandbox, an online tool that encourages playful exploration with coding. The text directs readers to the free URL, where users can register for personal accounts and code online in real time. The book alternates between six projects that explore coding basics (variables, objects, properties, arrays, loops, and conditionals) and sketches of prominent women computer programmers. The activities are simple and fun: create a meme, animate a rainbow, generate an emoji, produce some Pop Art. The website provides step-by-step directions, which are repeated verbatim in the text alongside extremely helpful screenshots. The profiles consist of a color portrait, a couple paragraphs of background information, and a direct quote, all intended to emphasize the contributions of women and encourage girls to get into coding. Beginners will require adult assistance at first, but the projects offer endless variations, and young users should be able to move to independent coding at some point. This will be a welcome resource for neophyte coders, including parents."
