Coding as a Playground: Programming and Computational Thinking in the Early Childhood Classroom
by Marina Umaschi Bers
"Coding as a Playground is the first book to focus on how young children (ages 7 and under) can engage in computational thinking and be taught to become computer programmers, a process that can increase both their cognitive and social-emotional skills. Readers will learn how coding can engage children as producers―and not merely consumers―of technology in a playful way." ~ Routledge - An Eye On Education Book

I'm looking forward to reading this book and learning more about coding and how it fits in the early childhood classroom.
