I highly recommend this book to anyone who is new to programming or at least middle school age kids.
I am using this book to teach python to 5 middle school kids in summer vacation. As of today, we have covered up to chapter 11 and so far kids are enjoying the book.
My daughter (sixth grade) and her friends had done little SCRATCH programming in their school club. So, I thought it would be a good idea to introduce them to computer programming language in summer vacation. I am an electronics engineer and have not done any programming in last 20 years. So, I looked at Java and Python and felt that it would be easy to teach Python.
This is a well written book and it is very easy for kids to read and follow the book. I like that there is Test your knowledge and Try it Out section at the end of each chapter. After I teach a topic, I ask kids question from Test your knowledge and give them Try it Out as their homework.
I have recommended this book to my friends to who wanted to teach programming to their kids.
