in education and have been looking for a good computer programming book for kids. Based on all my years of experience with how students learn, I wanted a book that would teach programming concepts without making huge leaps from one concept to another. I had bought another "basic" programming book before and chapters 1-4 were great and then in chapter 5, the leap was huge and any child trying to learn from it would get lost!

Ready to learn computer programming but aren't sure where to start? Look no further, Computer Programming for Teens is the book for you. Other books on programming tend to be language specific and often get bogged down in the syntax of the language. That is fine if you already have a strong background in programming, but if you're a novice, the language-specific approach can make things unnecessarily difficult. Computer Programming for Teens stresses concepts over language, but still includes examples in the most popular languages--specifically HTML, C++, and Java. It begins by explaining the fundamental topics, like data storage, and progresses through to more complex topics, such as decisions, loops, design, and complex data structures. Written by a high school teacher, the book includes helpful tips and analogies to guide readers through the maze of programming techniques, concepts, and common pitfalls. It introduces the most relevant topics for beginners and pinpoints the essential skills needed for programming success.

This book introduces the concept of how programming works from a hardware and software standpoint, explains the difference between low-level and high-level programming, and explains binary with an example of something been on or off. The book goes over many concepts that are required to know before you can program, but the actual programming involved in the book is very sparse. When the book uses programming examples, they are just short snippets showing code from a variety of different programming languages. It gives you an idea of how something would be programmed, but if you actually wanted to write programs, you wouldn't be able to after reading just this book.

If you want an overview of programming and how it works in very simplified terms, this is the book to get. Due to the title being "Computer Programming for Teens" though, this book led me to believe that it was going to actually teach programming in itself.

I am a Ph.D. in education and have been looking for a good computer programming book for kids. Based on all my years of experience with how students learn, I wanted a book that would teach programming concepts without making huge leaps from one concept to another. I had bought another "basic" programming book before and chapters 1-4 were great and then in chapter 5, the leap was huge and any child trying to learn from it would get lost! This book uses appropriate teaching strategies to help children understand the concepts in programming. It links each concept to a real world example that the student can relate to (this is very important in the learning process.) For example, when explaining the differences in programming syntax among languages in chapter 1 - a basic concept, it shows the parallel between that and the different syntax in 4 different spoken languages. When teaching the idea of binary, it explains it as open and closed roads. For each concept, there is a real world link which is the best way for children to learn. The book provides codes from different languages although seems to use C++ mostly, however, the purpose of the book is not to teach syntax but concepts in programming. It is the perfect book for someone to read before they start to code. It allows them to learn about different data types, strings, arrays, functions, loops, recursion, etc. Although code is given to demonstrate, the idea is to teach the purpose of these data structures. The best approach would be to go through this book first and then pick up a book that actually has you start working with actual code and writing programs. Although this book says Computer Programming for Teens, it could be used for any age student with enough maturity to and interest to begin learning programming. Many kids are able to start learning these ideas much earlier than the "teen" years.

I purchased this book for my 16-yr-old daughter who is interested in becoming a programmer. The book focuses on the concepts, not how to write a "Hello, World" program in any particular programming language. That's a good thing. As she moves on into specific languages, it makes it easier to learn the specific syntax of a language if you already have an understanding of the nature of strings, arrays, loops, logical arguments, files, etc.

Not wanting to wait 2 days for the paperback book to arrive, I also rented the e-book on Kno.com for $20. She liked using the e-book, but I think hard copies are beneficial because you don't have to switch back and forth between screens as you work.

Truly for beginners, this book provides the "big picture" of computer programming rather than the minute details.

I initially set my 13 year old up with NetBeans/C++ and he took to the book quickly and started working his way through the examples. He got stuck on the graphics chapter since it uses the old Borland graphics library (without any mention of it).

The solution is to use the free Code::Blocks EP (here: http://codeblocks.codecutter.org/) which includes the WinBGIm libraries allowing you to build with graphics.h and the vector graphics the book suggests. The IDE is designed for students learning C/C++ and is extremely helpful.

This book provides a good overview of programming, but lacks detail because it doesn't stick to one language, but rather talks about many languages. I understand the intent of the authors, but the information it tries to impart just doesn't come across as well as when the reader can actually try some of things out that the book is talking about, like programming anything! I prefer a text that focuses on one language, but speaks about the topics how this book does.

This book is actually very useful in simplifying this subject. I recommend anybody who has no experience with computer programming try to ignore the "for teens" moniker and give it a chance. Anyone could benefit from this book.

I'm offering a programming course this fall to young students, I've been programming for so long that I needed some guidance on how to explain basic concepts. This book was an excellent choice to do so. It offers examples from our daily life to understand programming concepts, which is very helpful. The book attempts to remain open to any programming language, which is a strength but also a weakness because it limits its ability to provide actual programming examples.
Well written programming book for teens. Updating would be good.
