An interactive introduction to information and communication technology, which explains what goes on inside computers and what makes them do what they do. With lots of flaps to lift and look beneath, fact-hungry children will devour the fascinating data contained in this bright and engaging non-fiction book.
A fun introduction to the world of computers and coding, this is a friendly book that uses technical vocabulary and the proper terminology to inform children about the ins and outs of computing. Every page is bright and engaging, with funny little bots that show all of the aspects of a computer and coding talked about; from hardware and the parts of a physical computer, to software and elements of coding. This book is absolutely jammed pack full of information. A great buy for any budding computer scientists, teachers who wish to increase their subject knowledge, the book includes a brief history of computers too. It's very wordy, and most of the text is quite small, so I'd say it's better for the older reader - however they may feel the 'lift the flap' element a little young. This book would be great for adults to enjoy with their children.
