How to Explain Coding to a Grown-Up
By Ruth Spiro, Illustrated by Teresa Martinez
How to Explain Coding to a Grown-Up, a remarkably ingenious book that delves into the world of coding, while empowering insightful readers with an opportunity to master complex concepts of computer science.

 Kudos to the author and illustrator for putting up a step-by-step concept of coding in easy-to-understand words in the book, How to Explain Coding to a Grown-Up.

Looking around for computers in daily use gadgets, a girl child swaps roles and explains coding to an adult. Starting with the basics of coding including hardware, software, algorithms and debugging, together the child and the adult check off all the aspects of coding.

The author succeeds in connecting coding to concrete real life examples which are familiar to young readers. Coding is further clarified using an actual code script on a two-page layout explained with relatable example of a visit to park and deciding whether to use the swing or use the slide. The child skillfully explains to the readers how information is used to make decisions which helps the software programmer write the code.

Based on the study that children learn more when they are asked to explain and explore new ideas, the book How to Explain Coding to Grown-Up, also drills the practice of asking questions when learning new ideas.

 The occasional Pro-tip on the sidelines in the book guides the readers with supplementary skills like patience, good nutrition etc. that are required for the hard-working brain of a computer programmer.

Vetted by a software developer, the book How to Explain Coding to a Grown-Up also subtly addresses the gender gap, with an inclusive book that portrays characters of all genders.

Centrally themed on the plot that children can be just as competent and curious as adults in learning new concepts, the book, How to Explain Coding to a Grown-Up is a launchpad to STEM enthusiasts and budding computer scientists.

Backed with a glossary and a fun activity for young readers to spy for computers in the neighborhood, the book How to Explain Coding to a Grown-Up will be an asset to schools, libraries, and bookshelves.
