Technology is everywhere and kids are learning how coding works from kindergarten all the way through high school. (My 10th grader is taking a coding class for high school credit this year!) It is not surprise that babies should be introduced to coding as well. Girls Who Code Baby Code is a set of four books that show baby how coding is used in her world.
Perfect for the littlest hands, the BABY CODE! board books show the youngest readers that coding is all around them, and how they can take part in it. Making use of experiences common in a baby’s world, like holding a teddy bear or playing with an electric train, these charming board books full of bright, colorful illustrations are the perfect introduction to coding in many different forms. The first book, BABY CODE! introduces coding in relation to everyday objects like a dog or phone, while BABY CODE! ART, BABY CODE! MUSIC, and BABY CODE! PLAY tie in the earliest experiences—like hearing a melody or playing on a swing. The sweet board books also feature real code, encouraging parents and children alike to be actively involved in technology from the very youngest age.
These books are adorable. The show baby doing an activity then a related way coding works in their world. For example one set of pages has daddy playing music on his guitar for baby. The next page shows a cell phone and tells how the code plays daddy's song when it rings. The actual coding for it is also listed in a bubble on the page. These books are sturdy and perfect for little hands and have a sweet way of exposing kids to learning about code.
