The book covers a wide amount of ground while presenting fun projects for the reader to follow along with. Like a musical instrument, Scratch is very much a “hands on” tool that you learn through practice, and this book is a well-versed guide. There’re plenty of web tutorials and videos that teach Scratch piecemeal, but this is THE manual that Scratch has been needing for a while. At 250 pages, it is thorough while still being a light-read; it’s easy to just jump into any chapter and follow along.
The one downside is that this book is probably best for teenagers and may be too verbose for kids around 10 or younger. But it makes an excellent book for parents or teachers to read through with their child (and a great way to introduce adults to Scratch programming as well). Otherwise, younger readers might like No Starch Press’s other Scratch book, “Super Scratch Adventures” which is not as thorough but is a gentler introduction to Scratch programming.
I highly recommend this book for schoolchildren to learn programming from.
Full disclosure, I am currently writing a Python programming book for adults for No Starch Press.
I have a brother who is as sharp as a tack in some ways, but is nonetheless mentally retarded. I mention him because I wanted to see if he could use the program. He’s taking to it like a duck to water. I also told my youngest daughter about this program and sent her a link to the MIT Scratch website so she can download it and maybe her kids will want to give it a try. Later today, I’m going to send the same link to my oldest daughter because they may also wish to give Scratch a try. It would be a good experience for them. At least two of my grandkids are into computers like me, and my youngest daughter seemed to be interested when I told her about it.
But don’t let the simplicity fool you. It will get you to where you need to be to program in any language you choose to use. This book will help you master Scratch, and then it’s up to you to put all that knowledge you learned to use in other programming languages. I recommend this anyone who wishes to learn programming.
This is one of two Scratch texts published by the No Starch Press. The other is Super Scratch Programming Adventure! which is a comic book style introduction to the Scratch programming environment and one of the first Scratch textbooks on the market. I like both books, but they are for different audiences. "Super Scratch" works best, I think, for kids grades 3 to 5. Kids (and adults) who don't like comics and want a more straightforward introduction to Scratch should go with Marji's book (this book).
Incidentally, the No Starch Press has a good number of high quality titles for kids who enjoy science and engineering. I'm quickly becoming a fan.
While Scratch itself is very usable by motivated first or second graders, this book is written with the same sort of depth and style as you might expect in a book on programming in a traditional language such as C or C#. As a result the book probably has a much higher age requirement than the tool it is describing. It's definitely written as a book for adults as a opposed to a book for kids (though if I were a kid this is exactly the sort of book I'd want to have as soon as I was old enough to read/understand it).
But if you're interested in learning Scratch for yourself, or especially with the idea of then using it to introduce programming to a child, then this is an excellent book that covers Scratch in great depth with lots of useful examples.
