Editorial Reviews

"What a unique idea for a children's book. It takes the most popular software teaching language and makes it accessible to younger kids." - Michael Kennedy, Host of the Talk Python to Me and Python Bytes podcasts

"I am very impressed with A Day in Code: Python and highly recommend it for anyone wanting to learn Python as well as those who want to expose children to important life skills they can acquire through learning computer coding." - Michael Knight, GeekDad

"This book provides an overview of many constructs in the Python programming language in a fun way through the eyes of kids and would be a great supplement for anyone interested in learning Python. The examples are centered around two kids who are writing programs to document their day. For anyone learning Python, both adults and kids, this book helps to show practically how to think like a computer as a person walks through everyday activities." - Jeffrey Miller, Dean of Engineering and Computational Sciences at Southern Utah University
