Coding for Beginners Using Scratch

This book uses images successfully to help those new to Scratch learn how to use the software and get started with block-based programming.

The format of this book makes it easy for self-directed students to teach themselves, or inexperienced instructors to teach classes in Scratch. The volume gives a nice, simple overview of getting started with Scratch and then provides easy to follow instructions for increasingly difficult projects.
