Description

Cats can code? These cats sure can! Playful rhyming verse and goofy illustrations introduce coding languages and syntax. Readers will learn why we need special languages for coding and see examples from a number of languages. And they'll quickly find out why correct syntax is key for avoiding up-mixes mix-ups! Author Brian P. Cleary, illustrator Martin Goneau, and the enthusiastic CATegorical cats offer a fun and accessible introduction to these key coding concepts.
